Britepath's goal remains unchanged: help clients overcome financial crises – first stabilizing them (providing food and financial assistance) and then encouraging them to enter financial literacy and workforce development programs. Since COVID-19, the demand for food and financial assistance has tripled. The food pantry has transitioned to a grocery gift card program (gift cards can be mailed) and the financial assistance program continues to provide help with rent, utilities, car repair, and pharmaceutical needs. The Financial Empowerment Center's online appointment system connects clients with a financial coach via computer or phone and now includes classes like the popular Coping Financially During COVID-19: Tips, Tools & Strategies. Workforce development services, including one-on-one job coaching, professional network mentoring, and job training – designed to help clients on the path to self-sufficiency – are all conducted virtually ... until the world rights itself.
