WHF Volunteers Needed for WHF Foundation Partner Good Shepherd Housing

Join WHF Foundation Past President Mary Martha Fortney, Foundation Board member Bobbi Montoya and WHF member Jennifer Aguilar on Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm to learn about the Foundation’s unique financial empowerment program, Changepurse, which will be used with the clients of Foundation partner Good Shepherd Housing.  The volunteer training session will be held at the Good Shepherd Housing offices located at 8305 Richmond Highway, #17B, in Alexandria.  Volunteers will facilitate the upcoming Changepurse series, which begins Wednesday, April 10 and ends Wednesday, May 22.  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.  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! Register Here
