Chhaya CDC seeks a Financial Counselor who will play an integral role in achieving Chhaya’s mission of building economically stable, sustainable and thriving communities. The counselor will work within Chhaya’s Economic Justice Program to target South Asian and Indo-Caribbean immigrants as well as other marginalized communities in New York City to promote economic independence and financial stability, with a particular focus on women, as well as contribute to Chhaya’s programmatic vision and growth for the community.

The Financial Counselor’s primary responsibility will be to provide individual counseling services for Chhaya while providing referrals to Chhaya’s other services and working on arising projects under team supervision. The Financial Counselor assesses clients during one-on-one financial counseling and, in partnership with clients, develops a personalized action plan in service of their clients’ financial goals. Action plans include concrete recommendations around debt reduction, credit improvement, money management, optimal use of financial services, asset-building and the pursuit of short- and long-term goals. Financial Counselors work with a high degree of independence and must exercise strong judgment and discretion with conducting outreach and managing client cases.
