How Does MyBudgetCoach™ Work?
- The MyBudgetCoach™ program matches a trained budget coach with a member.
- Online meetings occur once a month for 12 monthly sessions, with each session covering budgeting techniques, financial management and goal attainment strategies.
- The program’s online tools allow the member to track expenses in real-time, keep track of their budget, track progress towards achieving important financial goals and communicate with their coach and program staff members.
- The coach tracks the member’s progress in real-time and encourages members to stay on-task and on-track in-between sessions.
- MD CASH Campaign is the licensee in Maryland for MyBudgetCoach and provides this program to its partners at no cost.
- Through the first year of the MyBudgetCoach program, Maryland CASH Campaign Members were able to save a combined $69,057 and pay down debt totaling $54,879.
