Financial Partners

Financial Partners is a common sense money and budget management program for married couples. This program is designed to improve relationship skills by focusing on financial management. There is no cost to participate in the Financial Partners program.

Financial Partners follows the concepts of Dave Ramsey’s "Foundations in Personal Finance." Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, a popular national radio personality and best-selling author. The Dave Ramsey method of teaching is entertaining, engaging and injected with humor and personal experience. This program teaches participants how to make a cash flow plan for each paycheck, how to develop a cash envelope system and how to payoff debt.

FPFinancial Partners is a 12-week, life-changing program that empowers and teaches married couples how to make the right
money decisions and how to achieve financial goals.

Financial Partners does not encourage a get rich quick scenario. It teaches responsible spending, giving and saving. This program is not just for people having debt or collection issues. It is for everyone trying to improve their financial situation.

Financial Partners, including all training materials, is provided at no cost to participants. Classes are taught by accredited counselors in a one-on-one setting and/or in a group setting. Classes include videos, workbooks and group discussions.

Through this program, participants learn good financial principles for a lifetime of money management.

Two regional Financial Counseling Resource Centers, two mobile counseling centers and two traveling financial counselors conduct the Financial Partners program in nine counties. This program serves Bath, Clark, Estill, Madison, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Powell and Rowan counties.

Financial Partners is available to married couples, civic clubs, community and faith based organizations including churches, corporations and non-profit organizations.
