MindSet is a new program developed by ECS that is free for all accepted participants. MindSet pairs one-on-one coaching with group training to help individuals set goals, develop skills, and achieve self-sufficiency.

Unlike many other programs, MindSet uses a long-term approach that supports the whole person.

We enable participants to develop all of the skills needed to become self-sufficient by providing training, individualized coaching, and mentorship in four core areas: Health and Wellness, Employment, Education, and Financial Management.

In addition to creating and completing their own customized curriculum, MindSet participants will also receive cash incentives for finishing activities and a 2 to 1 cash match on the money they save within a designated bank account.

We are currently not accepting applications for MindSet.
