Apprisen Financial Coaching

Apprisen is a non-profit organization that concentrates efforts on financial coaching and credit counseling.  You can meet with a certified financial counselor in a free, initial counseling session that sets the foundation for identifying what you want to accomplish, including solutions to credit and debt concerns.

Through the online application, you can submit preliminary information that gets routed directly to a counselor. A certified financial counselor will contact you to discuss your situation and provide advice and guidance on possible solutions.

Financial Opportunity Centers (FOCs)

Greater Kansas City LISC and United Way of Greater Kansas City have partnered to bring a network of Financial Opportunity Centers (FOC) to help low-income families stabilize their long-term financial outlook.  Based on a model developed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, FOCs provide individuals and families with services across three areas: employment placement and career improvement; financial education and coaching; and public benefits access. These core services are integrated and provided to clients in a bundled fashion to reinforce one another and to provide a multi-faceted approach to income and wealth building.

  1. Employment Placement and Career Improvement – Increases low-income individuals’ access to jobs and builds an economically stable, financially literate and employable workforce.
  2. Financial Education and Coaching – Empowers people to take control over their financial future through coaching, financial literacy tools, and more.
  3. Public Benefits Access – Enables individuals and families to access information about public benefits available to them.

The FOCs empower individuals to change their behaviors and become financially stable. In partnership with United Way of Greater Kansas City and local funders, LISC established the local FOC network in 2013 with the Prosperity Center at Rockhurst University and the Women’s Employment Network. In 2014, they welcomed Guadalupe Centers, Inc., and Community Services League in 2015. The FOC Network will expand with a fifth site by 2017.
