Introducing the Coaching and Financial Empowerment (CAFE) Study in Partnership with BubbieCare and LEO of Notre Dame.
Jewish Family Service (JFS) of Houston, Austin, and Dallas have partnered with BubbieCare to develop a financial literacy and coaching study. The purpose of this study, created in association with the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) of Notre Dame, is for eligible participants to work towards increasing income, building savings, and acquiring assets while taking financial literacy courses and participating in financial coaching sessions.
The study will primarily focus on the clients of JFS as well as caregivers referred to JFS by BubbieCare.
JFS created a public private partnership to determine the best way to improve the quality of care provided in homes throughout the state of Texas.
With this research project embracing the impact of social determinants of health, we want to measure job and financial stability, wage advancement and increase the education and importance of financial wellness.
If you are a caregiver and are interested in becoming part of the BubbieCare network, which allows you to set your own hourly rate, follow the link below.
*This is a randomized control trial study and participants are randomly assigned into the study through the University of Notre Dame, signing up to be a caregiver through BubbieCare does not guarantee you will be selected to receive Financial Literacy trainings as part of the study.
JFS Houston offers coaching and financial literacy courses for two groups: CAFE study participants and individuals from the general community who wish to improve their financial literacy skills.
