Encouraging Financial Conversations is a program designed for case managers, social workers, and other frontline staff to help empower clients to achieve their financial goals and manage their money.

Participants will also learn coaching strategies that capitalize on a client’s strengths and resources in coming up with solutions.

The program is open to those serving families in Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth Counties. The virtual program will take place on March 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, and 18 from 1:00-2:00 PM. Registration is required at go.wisc.edu/efc.krw
