Money Management Volunteers Program

 CCCS Needs Your Help Now....

Did you know that there are vulnerable adults in Jackson and Josephine County who need your help managing their personal finances? In just 2-3 hours each month, you can help protect a person from financial abuse, utility cut off, and loss of independence by becoming a volunteer. Consumer Credit Counseling Service is working with Easter Seals Oregon, the Oregon Department of Human Services, as well as other community service agencies to deliver the Oregon Money Management Program around the state.

Watch the short video below to find out how to help support people ages 18 and over with limited incomes and assets who need help with money management tasks in Southern Oregon. Please call our Regional Program Coordinator, Robin Hoerler, at (541) 779-2273 or email her at:
hoerlerr@cccsso.org for volunteering information.

Money Management Program
What do MMP volunteers do?
Trained volunteers act as either a bill payer or a representative payee. The bill payer volunteer helps balance the client’s checking account, organize bills, and other financial tasks the client might need. The representative payee volunteer provides in-depth financial management assistance, including managing the client’s budget and writing checks on their checking account.
 
What are the qualifications to be an MMP volunteer?
The volunteer must be able to pass a criminal background check, reference checks, complete online volunteer training, be dependable, trustworthy, honest, and able to handle their own household finances including balancing a checkbook.
 
What is the time commitment to be a MMP volunteer?
We ask for a one year minimum commitment and strive to build long term relationships. Volunteers can spend as little as 2-3 hours a month with a client.
 
How often and where do we meet?
You will make arrangements with your client that will be convenient for your schedule. Most volunteers meet with their clients at the client’s home.
 
Do I receive support and training?
The Program has a paid coordinator who is a CCCS staff member. Most clients are referred by a case manager with a local agency such as Senior Services. The case manager acts as an ongoing resource to the volunteer.
 
Are client’s charged a fee for the help they receive?
No. They are all low income and cannot afford to pay for the help. The Program would not be possible without the involvement of volunteers. Volunteers make the program happen.
 
How do I get involved?
Call (541) 779-2273 or email hoerlerr@cccsso.org if you have questions or want to sign up as a volunteer.
