DCBA’s Center for Financial Empowerment is helping residents throughout L.A. County who are facing financial hardships.
As our County moves to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, many residents are still struggling with their finances. Those that had saved for an emergency find themselves with depleted savings accounts. Residents are trying to figure out how they will be paying off the credit card debt they incurred during the pandemic. Some may be looking for assistance on how to plan ahead and keep food on the table.
The Financial Navigators program is here to help! Navigators are providing free assistance over the telephone- they can help you prioritize your financial concerns, identify immediate action steps, and make referrals to other social services and resources that may offer long-term assistance. A Navigator can guide you through some of the following concerns:
- Paying for daily expenses
- Supplementing income
- Paying back debt
- Locating food and housing resources
- Finding special services or resources for you and your family
- How to stay well and plan ahead
As Federal, State, and local governments continue to implement programs to help communities, our Financial Navigators are trained to provide you with the latest information on new laws and new programs to make sure that you take advantage of them.
If you live in L.A. County and are facing financial difficulties, you can get started with a Financial Navigator by completing a short online interest form. You can also call us at (800) 593-8222 for assistance in completing the form.
