How We Help

Your hands may hurt when you write, or the print may be too small to read. Maybe tackling day-to-day finances is new for you. Perhaps you are taking over these responsibilities from a spouse or relative who can no longer lend a hand. Take comfort knowing you can call on our volunteers to help keep your finances in order by:

  • Sorting and organizing mail
  • Disposing of solicitations and junk mail
  • Writing checks for monthly bills in your presence
  • Recording payments
  • Balancing your checkbook
  • Reconciling bank statements
  • Creating a budget
  • Organizing personal papers
  • Identifying unnecessary records and documents
  • Explaining confusing forms (insurance, explanation of medical benefits)

A Free Service

This free program is an interfaith partnership between Lutheran Senior Services, Jewish Family & Children’s Service, and Agesmart Community Resources.
