The Pittsburgh Financial Empowerment Center is Hiring a new Program Manager!

The Financial Empowerment Center (FEC) program aims to improve the financial stability of households in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County by providing high quality, one-on-one financial counseling to residents. The Financial Empowerment Center counseling services are targeted to clients with a low to moderate income. Additionally, the FEC provides financial education to community partners. While services are available to everyone at no cost, in-person locations have been selected based on local resident needs and accessibility, as well as potential for partner referrals. The FEC is jointly managed by the City of Pittsburgh Office of Equity, Neighborhood Allies, and Advantage Credit Counseling Service, Inc.

Since launching in March of 2019, the FEC has served over 1,000 clients and has assisted those clients in achieving more than 1,700 key financial outcomes. FEC counseling services are based on four guiding principles: establishing safe banking relationships, increasing savings, reducing debt and building credit. In the past two years, FEC clients have experienced great success in achieving their financial goals. To date, FEC clients have saved more than $1.3 million and reduced their debt by more than $1.6 million. The FEC Program Manager is integral to the continued growth and success of this initiative, with primary responsibilities related to community partnerships, ongoing operations, and data tracking. The FEC hopes to continue this success with a candidate who has an entrepreneurial approach to growing the FEC. They will also be innovative in motivating the FEC team and improving service delivery that maximizes client outcomes.

The FEC Program Manager position reports directly to the Manager of Community Relations and Education within Advantage Credit Counseling Service, Inc. Duties include supporting the programmatic review and ongoing improvement of the FEC initiative, overseeing the client management and database system, ensuring that FECs are compliant with program protocols, outcomes and other requirements, and more.
