Financial Compass of Tarrant County


Financial Compass Tarrant County provides financial education to individuals and families to help empower and provide resources towards financial stability. Our mission is guiding Tarrant County residents to Financial Empowerment. 

The City of Fort Worth was awarded grant funds through Cities of Service, which is a nonprofit organization that helps mayors build stronger cities by changing the way local government and citizens work together. Cities of Service supports a coalition of more than 260 cities. This organization helps coalition cities tap into the knowledge, creativity, and service of their citizens to help identify and solve critical public problems.



Take the journey to financial empowerment and make your money work for you!

The intent of this Financial Compass of Tarrant County is to engage older adults as volunteers in efforts to address public problems related to the drivers of poverty, such as financial insecurity, planning and exploitation. The Experience Matters Program area of focus is financial empowerment and is administered by the City of Fort Worth Neighborhood Services. The program focus areas are the following: 


  1. Provide advocacy and educate community members on the benefits of financial health
  2. Cultivate and maintain partnerships among stakeholders such as community organizations, city agencies, nonprofit organizations, financial institutions, and neighborhood associations
  3. Raise the profile of the initiative through creative outreach strategies and help provide sustainability to expand the Financial Empowerment Program.
