FEPS staff and participant

Do you have money worries or financial problems? The Financial Empowerment and Problem Solving (FEPS) program is here to help!

FEPS enhances people’s ability to take control of their financial lives. We help people in immediate financial difficulty by providing information and discussing choices available and try to enable them to make informed, longer-term financial decisions.

All of our services are free. We help you make informed decisions by providing support, information, resources and training.

The FEPS team can help you:

  • file tax returns
  • get a bank account
  • get social assistance benefits if you are eligible
  • avoid common scams and financial fraud
  • deal with debt problems
  • get the most out of your personal resources

Call (416) 848-7980 and ask to speak to one of the FEPS staff. The program is located at 1033 King Street West.

More information about the Financial Empowerment and Problem Solving program

FEPS also provides information and assistance to colleagues in other non-profit community organizations and offers workshops for community members. The program also plays a role in identifying financial policy issues that adversely affect low-income people, and aims to facilitate positive change. This includes advocacy, developing new financial tools and/or proposing policy alternatives.
