Increase Savings and Reduce Debt
Transforming Family Finances
Family Financial Transformations (FFT) is a program that helps individuals or families increase their savings or reduce debt through an individualized financial coaching plan. We work with participants’ values and goals to create a plan that works. Joy is a necessity, so judgment is never part of the process.
FFT is a one-year program that includes wrap-around case management in addition to financial courses for the whole family—starting with family members as young as eight years old.
Since 2015, the Family Financial Transformations (FFT) program has helped families reduce debt by over $1 million.
384 participants grew their financial knowledge, increased their savings by 221% and reduced their debt by 16% through our Family Financial Transformations (FFT) program.
Autumn's Success Story
Autumn, a generous mother of five, never imagined she would need assistance from Catholic Charities. But when her personal life changed, she lost many things she had worked hard for, including her independence.
Through the Family Financial Transformations program, Autumn gained the knowledge and tools to take care of her family on her own.
FFT promotes personalized financial goals and budgets that are unique to each participant.
