FinancesFinancial empowerment is about control. BowWest's financial empowerment programs help people spend less, save more, and set goals for the future.
Money ManagementBowWest offers workshops that help individuals and families learn how to get the most from each dollar. Community Advocates are also available for one-on-one support with specific financial issues including: debt reduction, savings, budgets and eligibility for financial support.
Dollars & Cents
Take one or ALL 5 of our Dollars & Cents workshops. The workshops are based on information developed by Momentum, an organization that helps Calgarians develop the financial skills they need to build the lives they want to lead.
Participants who complete all 5 workshops may be invited to join a matched savings program called Family Saves. Participants can save between $20-$50 a month. At the end, savings will be matched 3:1.
This year's Dollars & Cents program includes a Financial Coaching session.
- Participants can work 1:1 with a trained financial coach
- Coaches will help participants access resources depending on their goals ( debt reduction, improved credit, buying a home, etc)
