Financial Literacy & Economic Stability

As a part of their efforts to help women recover from addictions and lead responsible, happy, and productive lives, the Financial Literacy Program will provide graduates of Angel House with financial knowledge and resources to utilize once they leave the house to live on their own. Residents will receive training on job seeking and employment, and they will spend time throughout the week applying for work, developing their profiles, and following up on referrals. Angel House staff will provide residents with transportation to interviews and job skills training. In addition, the women will attend classes on financial budgeting and set up savings accounts into which they will deposit 30% of their paychecks. By the end of the program, Angel House hopes to help women become employable and work towards obtaining permanent jobs and homes.
