For Senior Citizens

AARP Money Management Program

Do you or someone you know need help? In partnership with AARP, this program offers money management services to individuals with lower incomes. Older adults and people with disabilities work with trained, bonded volunteers to help balance their checkbooks, write checks for signing, organize their mail and or develop a budget. Participants sign their own checks and retain full control of their bank accounts and other assets.
