Financial Coaching

fə-ˈnan(t)-shəl \ ˈkō- chiŋ
Verb

Financial coaching is the process of working with a trained professional who collaborates with and guides their clients to reach their financial goals.

The process is personalized and non-judgmental. Financial coaches provide encouragement, support, and advice to help people make informed decisions and improve their financial situation. But not all financial coaches are alike; some, like ours, are elite.

I can now say I’m done dealing with paperwork and have the confidence that my future is secure financially. I highly recommend Wings for Widows to every widow, regardless of financial circumstances. In a time of overwhelming grief, it’s such a comfort to have help dealing with the necessary parts of life.

At a time when I was very anxious about what I should be doing to get on the right financial track, Wings for Widows came alongside me. They listened to my concerns and questions and helped me prioritize what needed to be done. My financial counselor was very empathetic and sensitive and did not overwhelm me. It felt like she was a friend from the first time we met. I am very thankful Wings for Widows was there - it was a safety net for me.
