The Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) will convene city departments, nonprofit providers and other key stakeholders to analyze the effectiveness of current services and programs. The stakeholders identify gaps toward addressing economic mobility and work to develop solutions, with the OFE helping to analyze resources and providing the infrastructure for developing initiatives.
Through the Denver Financial Empowerment Center, the office provides free one-on-one financial coaching to help residents of Metro Denver reduce debt, develop savings and establish and improve their credit rating. Site locations are subject to change. Click here for a current list of site locations.
The OFE’s Bank On Denver program helps unbanked or underbanked residents in Metro Denver access free or low-cost checking accounts, savings accounts and access opportunities to improve your credit rating.
