    Budget Buddies envisions a world in which ALL women and girls are economically empowered. We seek to reduce the disproportionate number of women and women-headed families who live on the economic margins by promoting financial literacy and self-esteem. Through programs that combine a comprehensive and customized series of instructional workshop with personal coaching, participants gain the confidence and skills they need for greater economic stability, sustained employment, increased educational opportunities, and better housing security. At the same time, our volunteer coaches gain a greater understanding of the challenges low-income women face and the opportunity to make a true difference in their lives.

    Over the past 10 years we have expanded from Lowell into Lawrence, Haverhill, Methuen, Nashua, and Boston and created a Spanish-language version of our program. This fall, we will launch our first Girl's LIFE (Learning Independence through Financial Education) for at-risk teen girls.

    And our program works! By graduation 71% of the women in our programs feel confident about their ability to manage their money, vs. 21% when the programs began. In addition, 67% of participants typically use a budget (up from 14%), 75% typically put money into savings (up from 31%), and 92% typically pay their bills on time (up from 55%).

    For more information, please call us at 978-703-0820 or visit our web site (www.budgetbuddies.org).

    A very worthwhile organization that empowers women, often in unexpected ways. The efforts of the founders, leaders, volunteers, and professionals at JDCU help all women with their financial knowledge and self esteem which strengthens families. Hooray!
