Money Management Program
Many Argus clients have suffered from long-term addictions and have had problems related to money management resulting in loss of shelter and/or utilities, homelessness, lack of adequate clothing and poor nutrition, etc.
Argus provides a Money Management program for individuals 18 years of age and up under which clients are engaged in one-on-one counseling on how to manage their lives on limited funding streams (federal and state entitlements, and entry-level jobs).
For many clients, Argus staff members set-up checking accounts (free to the clients) at major financial institutions, and then help the clients monitor the funds, pay landlords, and budget the funds while the client is learning how to spend their discretionary monies more appropriately.
Enrollment – Open. See eligibility requirements below.
The Money Management Program is a supportive “money management” service which is available to those members/patients enrolled in any of our ACCESS programs.
- Money management guidance and hands-on tools
- One-on-One Guidance
- SSI/SSD Direct Deposit*
- Direct Vendor Payments to Landlord-Rental Agency*
(*with member/provider approval). This service is an invaluable eviction-prevention and move-to-independence service.
Argus Community ensures Money Management program clients have continuous access to high quality services that are integrated into comprehensive, person-centered and recovery-focused provision of care.
