The counseling program will include making a budget, targeting debt, and decision based learning. This study is to last one year, and an assessment of the financial well-being improvement status will be taken. All counseling sessions would take place remotely using a PC or smartphone.Seeking select individuals to participate in a pilot program. We are working with a research donor to determine the effectiveness of providing supplemental income to households.

Each participant in every testing group will be given a case officer that will explain, advise, and help the participant to avoid financial mistakes and choose the best financial decisions.
