Safety Net Program

The Safety Net Program is a 6 week virtual money management program designed for individuals with IDD ages 14 & older.

Sessions will be held on the following Thursdays from 5pm – 6pm. There is no cost to attend. We do ask that you plan to attend all sessions.

Each Zoom class will be lead under the direction of Tree Rabold. Tree has worked with individuals with IDD for 34 years. She started working at GSI teaching Money Management skills to individuals with IDD in 2005.

Since that time she has helped countless people gain more independence by teaching them a variety of skills like budgeting, basic math and counting change. Another important lesson Tree stresses during money management classes is how to speak up when someone feels they are being taken advantage of financially.

This program is offered through a collaboration of two groups – GSI and The Self-Determination Group.

Space is limited. Anyone can attend. Priority will be given to Tarrant County residents if capacity is reached and a waiting list created.
