Money impacts nearly all aspects of our lives – where we live, what we eat, how we get around, the way we spend our free time, and our health to name a few. Money mapping, like budgeting, is a way to gain control over your money and meet your financial goals. Unlike budgeting, however, money mapping is designed to be a flexible and ongoing process that will help you reroute when life changes.

In this webinar, Holly Zugay, CFP® of Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, will lead attendees through the process of creating a money map and discuss ways you can use it to manage your finances and achieve your goals. Jill Gromen of JEVS Human Services will share her personal experience with using money mapping with young adults with disabilities. Attendees will also hear from a JEVS Money Club program participant who will share firsthand experience in using the money-mapping process to become more financially independent.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why setting goals is important;
  • How you can set SMART financial goals;
  • What you can accomplish by mapping your money;
  • How to create and use a money map; and
  • Practical applications of money mapping for individuals with disabilities.
