Financial Opportunity Center program

Would you like to become more financially stable and/or improve your employment situation? Clinch-Powell’s Financial Opportunity Center(FOC) is a place that can provide you with access to the resources, skills, and the support you need to achieve your goals.

The FOC will offer services in three primary areas - Workforce Training, Financial Coaching, and Financial Assistance Programs. A Clinch-Powell career and financial coach will work with you individually to help you gain the skills needed for obtaining employment, qualifying for promotion opportunities, and overcoming barriers to financial stability. Clinch-Powell will also provide personal budget and credit coaching, as well as access to resources to meet your needs while you are working to improve your situation. These resources may include assistance with applying for programs such as SNAP benefits, child care assistance, referrals to food assistance programs, access to money to pay for expenses related to travel to and from work or school and more.

The process begins with evaluating and establishing your personal goals, assessing where you are financially, and creating a plan of action. Your coach will connect you with resources and training opportunities specifically designed to meet the goals you have set for yourself. Your coach will then walk you through the steps in your action plan, providing encouragement, guidance, support, and connections to resources that will lead you to long-term stability in your employment and finances.
