About: The Community Empowerment Fund (CEF)’s mission is to cultivate opportunities, assets and communities that enable and sustain transitions out of homelessness. CEF offers matched savings accounts, financial education and relationship-based support.
2017-18 DGIN funding supports critical programmatic personnel expenses, training expenses and supply expenses related to delivering financial coaching and matched savings programs. The grant will provide the resources needed specifically to support personnel charged with training volunteer advocates to provide financial coaching services. The grant also supports credit union membership fees for CEF Members and food for CEF events that recognize Members’ savings and financial coaching achievements.
