Mentoring Towards Independence
The CCSI Mentoring Towards Independence program is designed to work with families who are ready to INVEST in themselves and their families. CCSI believes in the value of education and supportive relationships to empower individuals to direct their own paths to personal and financial wellbeing, and to create legacies of self-sufficiency for their families. The program meets once a week from September- May; with healthy and delicious meals provided at each session. It includes family mentoring, adult life skills and financial empowerment topics, financial counseling, matching individual development accounts and more.
While the adults attend class, the children attend a structured program focused on financial education and personal, academic, social, and spiritual development (PASS).
