P2P is very excited to be Connecticut’s newest Financial Opportunity Center® (FOC). FOCs are career and financial coaching service centers that help families living on a low to moderate income build sustaining careers and achieve financial success.  The cornerstone of LISC’s FOC model is providing services in an integrated way – rather than as stand-alone services – with a long-term commitment to helping clients reach their goals. The program provides three integrated service pillars: employment services, one-on-one financial coaching, and income support services.  P2P was selected to become the 6th FOC in CT-serving the Stamford community.

80% of P2P clients lost income and took on debt during the pandemic. The FOC at P2P will help individuals and families emerge from the pandemic by: accessing income supports, repairing credit, working on debt mitigation and participating in workforce readiness programs.   

If you are interested in learning more about this program, or eligibility requirements please contact caseworkservices@p2phelps.org or call (203) 655-0048.
