Home Healthcare Financial Coaching
JFS Dallas, JFS Houston, JFS Austin, and BubbieCare are partnering with the University of Notre Dame’s Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) to launch a study aimed at helping caregivers and their families become more financially stable! This is a Randomized Control Trial so some participants will be placed in a treatment group and some will be in a control group. Those participants who are selected to be a part of the treatment group will have access to training and coaching virtually on a bi-weekly basis for a 6-12 month commitment.
