As a personal banker, Jennifer Hanley is used to helping people manage their money. But her financial guidance became even more personal — and reached an entirely new demographic — during her time as a volunteer budget coach in United Way’s “Smart About Money” (SAM) program.
SAM helps families work toward their financial goals through one-on-one sessions with trained volunteer budget coaches. The free program is offered by United Way in partnership with The Annie E. Casey Foundation.
