The Trustee program provides financial stewardship for individuals who have a history of challenges managing their limited income. Many of these individuals have experienced mental disorders including addiction, learning disabilities, and chronic psychosis. Many have experienced homelessness and many more would be at risk of homelessness if this service were not available.
Besides assisting with money management, the Mission helps find housing and provides individualized support with life skills. Depending on need, clients may receive coaching in areas such as budgeting, resume writing and interview skills. Clients are also assisted with problem solving and setting goals, and we can often help to connect with other services and supports that will help them achieve their goals. Each year, we assist 500 people in this program.
