Argus Client Money Management Program

760 East 160th Street
Bronx, NY 10456

Many Argus clients have suffered from long-term addictions and have had problems related to money management resulting in loss of shelter and/or utilities, homelessness, lack of adequate clothing and poor nutrition, etc. Argus provides a Money Management program under which clients are engaged in formal, weekly educational classes centered on how to manage their lives on limited funding streams (federal and state entitlements, and entry-level jobs). For many clients, Argus staff members set-up checking accounts (free to the clients) at major financial institutions, and then help the clients monitor the funds, pay landlords, and budget the funds to while the client is learning how to spend their discretionary monies more appropriately.
