The financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic continues to linger and New Jersey residents seek advocates on their side to provide reliable guidance and resources to regain their stability. Navicore Solutions recently received grant funding from the Investors Foundation at their agency's headquarters in Manalapan, New Jersey.  This grant helps to further support their agency's mission of “strengthening the well-being of individuals and families through education, guidance, advocacy and support” through their Virtual Financial Education Project.  The Project offers efficient and effective delivery of financial education outreach via various internet platforms to New Jersey residents in a time when social distancing protocols have paused in-person programs.

The program benefits New Jersey consumers in need as this method of facilitation enables delivery of educational content to anyone no matter their physical location.  The only requirement is to have access to the internet in order to participate in a zoom conference session and communicate afterwards should the consumer seek to receive further assistance. Curriculum development that is relevant to the financial crisis at hand is a priority. These efforts are supported by their monthly Podcasts, blogs and distribution of newsletters, all with a financial literacy focus.

“Navicore Solutions has historically been a preferred provider of workshops and seminars for local community members and clients on a wide range of financial education topics,” said Navicore Solutions' Chief Program Officer, Diane Gray.  “Our experience and affiliations within our local community have enabled us to seamlessly transition into an entirely virtual program.” Virtual workshops are currently being presented to Navicore Solutions' community partners serving vulnerable populations, including   Monmouth County Division of Social Services, the United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties Financial Success Center Network, Mental Health Alliance of Monmouth, Displaced Homemakers of Monmouth County and NJ Community Affairs to name a few.
