Rebuilding Family Self-Sufficiency
So you just accepted a new job. Great! Congratulations!
Sure, it's a relief to have re-established some income, but to create family self-sufficiency it takes more than just a paycheck. It takes knowledge of how to manage the funds that are coming into the household so that you can build a stable future regardless of what road bumps might be up ahead.
MAM's Employment Services Program is affiliated with a group of 18 agencies in Houston who have the common objective of helping your family regain financial stability.
Where can a referral to a THRIVE partner agency be of help?
- Free tax preparation services
- Matched savings programs
- Subsidized loan programs
- Free checking accounts
- Financial coaching and counseling
- Access to higher education alternatives
If you are interested in learning more, simply ask Yolanda Bing or Bob King at MAM for details on how a THRIVE referral can help you access more services. Or, you call 2-1-1, the Texas United Way Helpline, and ask for a THRIVE specialist. Once you give them your name and some identifying information, they will know that you are a THRIVE client, because you are a MAM client.
Here's a flyer that can provide you with more information. Hope it's helpful. Any questions, just raise your hand and ask.
