WHF Volunteers Needed for Foundation Partner Good Shepherd Housing

Volunteers are needed for 2nd Changepurse series to begin Wednesday, April 18.  Do you live in Virginia and are you able to volunteer for one hour with Good Shepherd Housing (VA)?  Interest continues to grow for "Changepurse," the WHF Foundation's unique course in financial security and empowerment that has been used for several years.  WHF volunteers facilitated a successful pilot series at Good Shepherd last fall, and we have been asked to provide volunteers for the 2nd Changepurse series, beginning Wednesday, April 18 and ending Wednesday, May 23.  Approximately 6-8 Good Shepherd female participants between the ages of 32 and 53 will participate in the series.  They are single heads of households, have high expenses that strain their limited incomes and will benefit greatly from financial coaching and education.  The goal of Changepurse is to change the participants negative spending habits, encourage them to treat money as value, and help them understand the importance of creating a financial cushion.  Classes are held from 7pm to 8pm for six weeks Wednesday at Good Shepherd's offices located at 8305 Richmond Highway, Suite 17B, Alexandria.  Volunteers can sign up for one or more classes.  Training will be provided for new volunteers.  To learn more and to volunteer, please email WHF Foundation President Mary Martha Fortney at [email protected], call her at 703-507-4088, or call WHF at 703-683-4742.  Thank you for your willingness to help others! You are needed and will be richly rewarded!
