Mission: Create a financially aware and empowered community through providing education and services on financial literacy

Vision: Everyone can transform their lives to be fiscally sound 

Value Statement: Fulfilling the Call to Serve by Pouring into the Lives of Others

Cups, Jars, and Vessels (CJV) equips individuals and families with effective financial tools, via education on knowledge of money management, to help them make their everyday dreams come to life. For some, it may be to manage a budget, while for others it may be to learn new skills to improve their access to the simple necessities of life.

Our belief is that life is reciprocal. When offering to give to someone else, we learn to look outside of our own situation and see the world from another person’s vantage point. Our hope is that others will join us in taking the time to give to someone else, a gift that will surely return.  As we help individuals, we hope that our act of service will help to remove thoughts of a self-serving society. When we become the Cup, the Jar, or the Vessel that pours into the lives of others, we become a community that not only cares, but are willing to share by giving of oneself.

Our Services:

  • Training on targeted topics to help families budget to gain access to their personal dreams.
  • Scholarship awards to graduating youth preparing for secondary education.
  • Support beyond the local community to assist organizations that offer services that align with CJV’s goals and mission.
  • Encourage people to provide service to others.
