Moneytalk is based in Shawnee, KS as a home-based non-profit organization.  We are currently working on securing the ability to have our own full-time space.

Moneytalk primarily provides on-site services in both Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas.

We have also provided on-site services in Topeka, Lawrence, and Leavenworth on the KS side of the Metro.  We have provided on-site services in Independence, Kansas City, Liberty, and Raytown on the Missouri side of the Metro.

As a result of the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, we have begun offering video workshops, online financial coaching, and short educational videos on our YouTube channel enabling services to be provided remotely.

Who does Moneytalk work with?

Yes.  We have taught many workshops within other non-profits, in the community, and through financial coaching. 

Yes.  We host workshops within for-profit businesses as well.  The cost is $25 per person to help cover our costs.

Workshops can be hosted as a Lunch-n-Learn, half-day or full-day workshop during a workday or on a Saturday.  Longer workshop costs will be assessed based on topic materials, meals provided, workshop location, etc.

In the beginning, Moneytalk worked exclusively in the correctional facilities – specifically Topeka Correctional, Johnson County Juvenile Detention, Johnson County Adult Residential Center, & Fort Leavenworth’s JRCF (Joint Regional Correctional Facility) on the base.

As of 2018, we no longer provide services inside any correctional facility.  We are 100% in the community.

What does it cost?

Workshops vary in cost but are normally $20-$25 per person.  Longer workshops and those where a meal is provided will have a higher cost.

Yes.  Moneytalk offers two types of scholarship opportunities for workshops, academies, and coaching.

A need-based scholarship award will be either 100% or 50% of the cost.

Second is a volunteer-based scholarship of up to 50% of the cost.

Yes.  Companies are encouraged to help their employees, and their families, to be financially stable by paying a portion or all of the workshop & coaching costs.  Studies show financially secure employees are more productive, happier, and stay longer.

We do encourage the employee to have some “skin in the game” so to speak.  Our experience is that people take the financial life-skill workskhops and coaching more seriously if they have to pay part of the cost – either through money or volunteer hours. 

Yes.  Moneytalk will, on occasion, provide financial assistance to currently active clients.  Check out the Ongoing Support program services to learn more.

No. Moneytalk does NOT provide financial assistance to non-clients.  Individuals, couples, or families must be working with us to become financially stable to qualify for financial assistance.
