To support women in greater economic stability, whether they are employed or self- employed, Financial Coaching has become available to all women being served by the OneKC for Women alliance.
With Financial Coaching, each woman has access to a coach who will meet the woman where she is at when she gets connected to the alliance. Her goals will take priority in the one-on-one meetings with the coach providing support, direction, and technical assistance where needed. As a part of the program model, each woman will be able to complete a credit report review and action plan with a Financial Coach. Once understanding the key steps a woman needs to take to build her credit score, she can take control of her financial future and within months will start to see the larger impact in her life of having a higher credit score.
