Personal Budgeting Assistance

The purpose of PCOA’s Personal Budgeting Assistance program is to prolong independent living in the community for low-income older adults who have difficulty managing their financial affairs. They may have had their utilities shut off, be in danger of eviction, or experienced financial exploitation.

The program utilizes trained volunteers to help individuals budget, write checks, and organize bills. Older adults who received assistance reported improved peace of mind, stabilized finances, and help with solving financial problems.

What our volunteers can do

  • Help sort, mail and organize bills for payment
  • Balance checkbooks
  • Help set up a list of monthly income and expenses
  • Write checks from a designated account for client signature

Income and other eligibility limits apply. For more information, contact Jennie Cunningham at (520) 305-3410.
