Financial Wellness Program
Chi Ishobak has structured a personal financial management program that is unique to Native American citizens. It is the goal of Chi Ishobak to provide citizens with the tools necessary to manage personal financial resources properly. Addressing fundamental areas such as savings, communication with money, budgeting, debt-management, and buying behavior can help citizens establish healthy financial habits. Looking back to the successful techniques of our ancestors gives us all the information and strength needed to be successful in today’s environment.

Individual Financial Coaching

Chi Ishobak will assist in preparing a working budget, allocated spending plan, debt-reduction plan, and/or savings plan. More importantly, behaviors that affect individual and family finances will be identified and adjusted accordingly. Building individual and family financial capacity is a key to strengthening our community from within.
