Budget Counseling


If you need guidance with your household budget, you can receive individual help with financial planning and budgeting.

Please contact Jessica Pierce at jessica.pierce@dor.org  for a telephone appointment.


Our financial assistance program through Turning Point provides negotiated budget agreements and direct payments to landlords, utility companies, and pharmacies along with trouble-shooting to help people avert eviction, utility shut-off, hunger or medicine shortage. There are no fees for this service. Call the office nearest you for a telephone appointment or email the Financial Assistance staff member (see below). Our team members will be happy to discuss your unique situation and assist you with the help of the MY PLAN Budgeting Tool.
