Money Management Program
MMP assists seniors and people with disabilities to manage their finances. This promotes independent living, and helps prevent homelessness and unnecessary institutionalization or guardianship. This service is offered free of charge to eligible individuals.
MMP staff train community volunteers to become Representative Payees and Bill Payers to support the financial needs of clients enrolled in other programs, including Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities. These volunteers work to ensure that the client’s public benefits, such as Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), are used for high priority client needs like shelter, health and food.
The Money Management Program is part of the AARP Foundation, AARP’s affiliated charity. Easter Seals Oregon proudly supports the Money Management Program as the State coordinating agency for Oregon.
MMP clients are referred by their case managers to receive money management services.
If you have an interest and passion for working with seniors and adults with disabilities; experience in personal banking, budgeting, balancing checkbooks, or bill paying; and are able to volunteer two to four hours per month, please call us today!
