This Capstone Project addresses the financial hardships faced by low income and underprivileged members of the Rochester-area and surrounding community, which is partially an end-result of inadequate budgeting and financial management skills. The project also provides an analysis of the impact of the C.A.S.H. Coach Program (Funded by United Way and Collaborating Partners) on the finances of individuals who participated in the nine-month program. I participated in the nine-month C.A.S.H. Coach Program as a coach, and also worked with the Assistant Director of C.A.S.H. to perform a detailed analysis in order to determine whether or not the provision of community-based budgeting and financial management programs are truly an asset to Rochester, NY and the surrounding community.
