Client ServicesWFCM's Client Services Program is inclusive of but not limited to: budgeting assistance, emergency food and clothing provisions and referral to other social service providers.
In FY 2013, the WFCM Client Services Program provided 374 households with $182,245 in rent/utility assistance.
Our Mercy Ministry consists of the Clothing, Furniture and Transportation Ministries:
- Clothing. We provide clothing, household items and bed linens to families facing homelessness.
- Furniture. We match donated furniture to families with an identified need.
- Transportation. Our dedicated transportation volunteer is available to transport clients without any other means of transportation to and from a variety of medical appointments.
Our Pathways to Success mentoring program, funded since 2011 through a Freddie Mac Foundation grant, assists 10 families per year with reducing financial support towards their rent and utility payments. Partnered with WFCM food pantry appointments and thrift store vouchers, the resources help families climb out of debt toward self-sufficiency. Parents meet twice monthly with counselors for budgeting accountability and to complete a mandatory Financial Peace University DVD and workbook series
Financial Peace University (FPU) is a nationally-known budget course offered by WFCM and taught by an experienced Board of Directors member. FPU is offered to all of our clients and the general public as a way to help them get on course with debt-reduction, savings and working toward self-sufficiency over the course of a 9-week class. In FY 2013 12 students graduated from our program.
