Financial Empowerment and Problem Solving Program

2017-2021

Prosper Canada is working in partnership with West Neighbourhood House, Jane/Finch Centre, Agincourt Community Services Association, and The Working Centre to strengthen the Financial Empowerment and Problem Solving (FEPS) Program over four years. Building on the expansion and replication of the program over 2015-2017, the FEPS program helps Ontarians living on low incomes to improve their financial situation by accessing government income transfers and building their capacity for financial security. To achieve these outcomes the FEPS sites provide:
 
  • One-on-one financial problem solving sessions,
  • Free tax clinics,
  • Workshops on financial empowerment topics, and
  • Community outreach events.
This project is funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS).
