Financial Opportunity Center


The Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) at the Guadalupe Centers helps low-income families stabilize their long-term financial outlook by providing core services across three areas: employment readiness and career improvement, financial education/coaching and public benefits access. These core services are integrated and provided to clients in a bundled fashion in order to reinforce one another and to provide a multi-faceted approach to income and wealth building.

In addition, the Guadalupe Centers as part of the FOC, in 2015 partnered with El Centro, Inc. to become a certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site, to provide free tax preparation support to low and moderate income individuals.

Bilingual (Spanish/English) financial education and coaching.
