Making Smart Financial Choices

In 2015, Mon Valley Initiative was named a Financial Opportunity Center — one of only three in the Pittsburgh area, and the only one outside the City of Pittsburgh.

Working in collaboration with NeighborhoodAllies, the Local Initiative Support Corp. and other agencies, we can provide help to families and individuals in three areas:

Employment (finding a new or better job)

Financial capability (learning to save money, make a budget and use banking services)

Access to public benefits (connecting to affordable housing, childcare, transportation, help paying utility bills, and healthcare)

We’re also part of the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency’s statewide network of counselors who are helping people just like you learn how to take charge of your money.
