An important part of our mission is providing financial education to people with disabilities. Our education efforts help people make more informed decisions about managing their personal finances, which allows them to take control of their financial future.
Cents and Sensibility
As part of our financial education mission, we developed a book called Cents and Sensibility: a guide to money management. Our pilot programs that used this book as a teaching manual taught us that all people, including those without disabilities, can benefit from this information. Everyone needs to understand how to manage their money so that their money doesn’t manage them!

Financial Fundamentals: Discussion Starters for Youth
With more and more personal finance classes being taught in our schools, we were glad to be involved in the development of a guide for transition-aged youth. This will be used by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education.
