How We Help
Together with our clients, we establish a household budget that is realistic and manageable that meets priority needs such housing, food, utilities and medical expenses. We help:
- Coordinate services with other agencies to meet clients’ needs
- Protect vulnerable clients from being taken advantage of or becoming victims of a scam
- Help clients become more financially disciplined, control spending, and reserve funds for unforeseen expenses
- Teach clients who are able the tools to gradually assume responsibility for their own finances
Service fees are based on the client’s income and ability to pay. Maranatha-Carlisle receives support from the United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County, Partnership for Better Health, Community Aid, and individual donors which allows us to offer many clients support at no cost to the client.
Representative Payee Services
Representative Payee Services are available to clients who receive Social Security or SSI benefits and who can’t manage or direct the management of his or her benefits. This service allows individuals to lead independent lifestyles with the support of a financial manager whose duty is to make sure the current needs of the beneficiary are met. Once these needs are met, a check is issued to the client to provide funds for the client each week. Maranatha-Carlisle receives payment for these services as determined by the Social Security Administration.
