Helping people grow in their financial stability by serving as their Financial Guardian.
The Trusteeship Program grows client’s dignity by enabling them to find financial stability, which helps to move them gradually out of poverty and into a place where they can maintain their own financial future.
All funds are deposited in a trust account. Each individual works with our trustee officer to develop a budget to ensure the client’s funds sustain them throughout the month. This budget ensures that critical expenses are looked after (rent, telephone, utilities) to protect the client and keep them safe.
The financial counselling clients receive will help them develop the skills necessary to manage their finances independently. This is mandatory for all residents of Streets Alive Mission’s supportive housing facilities.
