Introducing the NEW LiveAble:Cohorts Program

We are proud and excited to announce a new program that joins the concepts of FutureProfits with those of our LiveAble program which provides credit, foreclosure, and homeownership counseling. We hope to be able to change lives by building on the great work we do in FutureProfits through our curriculum, classes, and relational volunteers. By pairing the FutureProfits concepts with our current LiveAble counseling program, we will be able to serve young adults facing critical decisions about their future lives and finances. 

The new LiveAble:Cohorts program focuses on 18-30 year olds, equipping them with resources and assets to move from merely surviving to thriving and helping them make life choices that enable them to climb out of economic survival mode. This program is set up in a cohort model for peers to move forward together in a healthy environment while having group accountability and mentorship. 

Each cohort will last for a year, with anywhere from 10-20 members in each. The cohort will meet weekly as a group providing a time to connect, build community, and encourage one another to make great choices. Additionally, mentorship will be offered to each individual. Each cohort will be formed around interest groups to better serve the needs of the cohort members and to work towards the same goal with a unified purpose. For example our first group will be focused on young moms and is called LiveAble:Women.

All cohorts will support members as they expand assets via matched saving accounts, credit building/rebuilding, emergency savings accounts, and personal resource development. The cohort will help participants be successful, accountable, and educated in their finances, academics and vocation – working to both correct and avoid financial mistakes that might affect their ability to succeed.

With this new program, there are many new opportunities to volunteer. Click here for ways to get involved.
