Time Commitment

A few hours per week

Duration

Long-Term (6 months-1 year)


Join the Springwell volunteer team and make a difference in just a few hours per month.

Taking care of monthly bill paying and maintaining a budget can be overwhelming for some people due to aging or physical limitations. A little support with managing finances is often one of the services individuals need in order to maintain their independence. Money Management Program volunteers assist low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who are still able to make responsible decisions about their financial affairs but may need some functional assistance with the bill-paying process, to achieve economic security and maintain peace of mind. Volunteers assist consumers with monthly bill paying, paperwork organization, establishing a budget, keeping track of bank records, monitoring income and handling other issues associated with personal finance.

Volunteers will be matched with a consumer in one of the communities around Waltham, including Belmont, Brookline, Needham, Newton, Watertown, Weston or Wellesley.

QUALIFICATIONS

Volunteers must pass a back ground check and should be friendly, patient, and have good communication skills.

The time commitment is flexible, and ranges from 3 to 6 hours per month depending on a consumer’s needs. A minimum one-year commitment to the program is requested.

We will train you and provide ongoing support. The initial training is two hours. Volunteers attend 3 training sessions per year to learn about new resources and refresh their program knowledge.
