Financial Fitness

New Milford Social Services offers guidance for residents experiencing difficulty in budgeting.  Working one-on-one or in a group, our social workers can assist with challenging financial situations by offering information on managing your budget, spending less and saving more, prioritizing debt and financial obligations. 

Our office offers financial tips and information on a monthly basis through our newsletter and occasional workshops specifically set up to teach the skills to enhance one's relationship with his/her money.  This information is helpful to all, regardless of one's income level 

«We are introducing a terrific little workbook:"BEHIND ON BILLS? Start with one step" This book contains tools designed to help you handle money emergencies, cut down on stress from mounting bills and build your finances to where you want them to be. Provided by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, it includes steps to track where your money is going and strategies to getting more money out of your situation and making tough choices in tight months. It also provides resources you can turn to for further help.
