Mission Statement

The mission of Budget and Financial Management Assistance is to foster financial stability by providing budgeting, bill payment, and advocacy as a representative payee to disabled, homeless, and elderly persons in the Kansas City metropolitan area. When clients in other Missouri communities need financial management and there is no local provider, BFMA serves those persons as the provider of last resort.

Many disabled individuals receive Social Security benefits, but because they lack the skills to manage money these individuals are in danger of homelessness. Social Security forces them to turn over the management to a third party, but relatives or friends who do this often take advantage of them and steal their funds. BFMA improves daily life for those who experience severe and persistent mental health issues because they can trust BFMA to use their funds properly, and they know bills will be paid regularly and on time. With BFMA expertise in financial management, they achieve stable housing.

Clients have heat and lights and a weekly allowance to purchase food and other necessities. They gain dignity because they participate in building their budget, and they make decisions about how to spend their benefit.

Their improved quality of life promotes peace of mind and mental health wellness.

Background Statement

In 2016 BFMA celebrated 20 years of service for disabled people in need of help with managing their own finances.  Founded in 1996, Budget and Financial Management Assistance (BFMA) serves 750 disabled and elderly clients annually in the greater Kansas City area. In a single year BFMA manages $6,000,000 on their behalf.  BFMA was founded to provide supportive services, primarily financial management, because clinical case workers were not equipped to provide this help.  But without assistance managing their own funds, clients became homeless and did not have financial stability.  BFMA serves as a representative payee for these at-risk people and receives this designation from Social Security.  Social Security often mandates that an individual have a payee because they have a history of inability to handle their financial affairs which results in homelessness and unstable, volatile relationships with family and friends.  If that individual does not have any trust worthy person in his life willing to take on this responsibility, then his choices are limited.  This is where BFMA steps in to provide payeeship services. Funds are sent directly to BFMA for the benefit of the client.  Mentally and physically disabled and elderly people rely on BFMA to pay rent in order to keep a roof over their head, to pay utility bills to ensure ongoing service, and to send a check once a week for groceries and personal needs.  BFMA not only pays basic bills for clients, but also advocates for them with landlords, utility companies, and creditors.  BFMA helps protect them from being taken advantage of financially.  BFMA works with clients to establish a budget and helps clients make sound financial decisions.  Clients experience peace of mind that allows them to work on improved mental health.  Recently BFMA added educational opportunities. These include Financial Literacy classes, farmers market days to promote purchase of fresh produce and materials for new clients to smooth their transition and reduce their anxiety.

Impact Statement
With BFMA’s support, every client uses their Social Security income to build well-being going from financial uncertainty to hope. Disabled clients lack an understand the consequences of failure to pay the rent, so BFMA impacts them by preventing homelessness. BFMA is unique because anyone who qualifies for disability income and is required to have someone receive and manage their monthly benefit is eligible.
 
BFMA has three recent major achievements:
  1. Updated Client Management System - Formerly paper processes such as change of address or landlord are now electronic components of the client management system. Advantages include reducing duplication and avoiding errors through standardization of terms and increasing time spent directly with clients.
  2. Acquisition of new computers and software - Reduced down time, enhanced communication with clients and colleagues and reduced costs for telephone and electronic connectivity are beneficial outcomes of new software.
  3. Enhanced client data collection - Case workers track the eligibility of clients for other public benefits and note whether or not they have continuing contact with their mental health case worker.
 
Goals for 2017-2018:
  1. Add lead case worker to provide leadership and oversight for case worker team. The executive director is not always available to staff and has many other duties.
  2. Train staff to use new equipment correctly and efficiently while encouraging creative practices that enhance timely response to client need.
  3. Provide pay equity for staff who are underpaid when compared with case managers in mental health organizations.
  4. Conduct outreach to under-served populations 1. in the metro area to Hispanic and elderly clients and 2. in Greene, Cass, Johnson, and Buchanan counties to increase options for financial management supportive services.
  5. Expand the use of pay cards and automatic payments to vendors to decrease the expensive use of paper checks.
Needs Statement
  1. Hone counseling skills of staff through ongoing training. Train staff to use new equipment correctly and efficiently to enhance timely, compassionate response to clients. Also educate staff regarding stress relief techniques. $5,500
  2. Continue outreach to unserved disabled qualified citizens in Greene Cass, and Buchanan counties to increase client access to financial management and improve outreach in Jackson County to elderly and Hispanic populations by contacting mental health facilities, and housing authorities. $8,500
  3. Add a lead case worker who can provide leadership and guidance every day for the case managers. The executive director has increased duties representing BFMA. $45,000
  4. Plan and implement pay cards for clients to reduce postage and check preparation costs. Complete ACH set up to more efficiently pay utility bills and reduce use of paper checks. $5,000
  5. Provide pay equity for highly trained staff who compassionately and competently manage $6,000,000 for clients. Staff do not receive adequate compensation compared to other mental health case workers. BFMA cannot compensate staff for improved skills or experience. $40,000

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

My name is Tina Boutelle and I have served on the BFMA Board of Directors six years. My professional expertise is customer relations. The agency provides exemplary service to the disabled clients who depend on BFMA for financial management. Case workers ably counsel with clients about their budgets.  The customer service challenge is to convince clients to make decisions that result in reliably paying the rent and utilities and delaying purchases that are not essential. Recently the Board secured grant funding to replace dated and inadequate IT equipment and software that is vital for managing the financial and personal information of clients.  The new software will open new avenues of connectivity and conferencing with clients and colleagues electronically.  The Client Management System has been updated and the need for paper files of receipts and check requests is eliminated.  Case workers use proven techniques to empower clients to take control of their economic decisions and not become helpless.  BFMA provides financial security for individuals at risk for homelessness because they have a history of inability to handle their funds. The Board not only sets policy, but also offers hands on supervision in order to provide the recommended separation of duties.  The Board has systematically grown the operating reserves of BFMA over a three-year period.  This is always a challenge for a small non-profit organization. The Board members contribute personally both financially and with time and talent.

BFMA continues to be challenged by funding needs. BFMA clients are very low income individuals with chronic mental health issues who lack resources to become donors. They frequently alienate friends and family who might become donors. BFMA provides vital supportive services for the disabled, but does not provide clinical service that funders are more likely to support. BFMA has a small donor base composed of volunteers and church members that is difficult to grow. The agency is challenged to maintain an adequate IT environment for a small staff that manages $6,000,000 for 750 clients each year. Staff members who counsel clients are not well paid by industry standards. Providing needed training is expensive. The agency continues to work with clients to improve their financial literacy. This effort has successfully motivated many clients to save part of their discretionary funds. Those who need help understanding their rights and responsibilities as tenants receive needed instruction. The Board reviews grant applications and resists adding program simply because funds for that kind of expansion are available. An important BFMA achievement is successfully becoming a member agency of the United Way. The United Way designation provides needed funding and assures donors that the agency is professionally managed. BFMA received increased funding from the Jackson County Mental Health Levy based on the demonstrated excellence in serving disabled clients who live with chronic mental health issues. I believe that my service on the Board represents the willingness and capacity of younger people to take on leadership in this organization as experienced Board members retire and trust us with continuing the mission of BFMA.
Programs
Description
Budget and Financial Management Assistance acts as an organizational representative payee for disabled individuals who do not have skills needed to manage his or her Social Security benefit check. The beneficiary can appoint a family member or friend but often these individuals do not know anyone who is trustworthy and capable. Without a dependable payee, a beneficiary cannot receive his or her rightful disability payment. A recipient can ask BFMA to step in. BFMA promotes financial stability for mentally and physically disabled persons by providing budgeting and bill payment. BFMA engages in advocacy with landlords, utility companies, and Social Security. BFMA works with other agencies to provide supportive services that lead to improved mental health and stable living conditions. BFMA pays the rent, keeps utilities current, and sends a weekly allowance check. BFMA offers Financial Literacy lessons to promote financial self-sufficiency. Payeeship is BFMA’s only program.
Program Budget $300,000.00

Short-Term Success

The immediate improvements include establishment of regular monthly rent and utility payments and a weekly stipend for personal needs. BFMA case workers work closely with a new client to help with his or her individual financial needs. Some clients choose to reduce their debt; some clients want to save for a new TV. BFMA helps clients meet their personal goals without neglecting to pay for the essentials--rent and utilities. New clients need reassurance that their bills will be paid and that their financial condition will improve if they stick to their budget. They need to understand how to request funds for an unexpected expense and what day the weekly check will arrive. The short term achievements are financial stability and stable living conditions. This leads to improved mental health because of reduced day to day stress.

The majority of BFMA clients will never be able to become their own payee, but our goal is to assist them live the most self-sufficient life possible.  

Long-Term Success
Long term success is financial stability and security. Because disabled clients with a poor track record of money management are not allowed to receive their social security benefits, they can choose BFMA to provide responsible financial management. It is frightening to agree to let an agency control how one's money will be spent. It is a relief to have the rent and utilities paid and receive a weekly check for food, but it is hard to hear one cannot afford extra cable services. Prior to connecting with BFMA, many clients experience homelessness and unstable, substandard living conditions. Once clients establish the habit of living within a budget, they experience increased mental wellness and stable relations. With BFMA supportive services, clients reduce their debt. When clients engage in Financial Literacy training with BFMA, they become involved with budgeting and attain more financial management self-sufficiency. A few clients gain the needed skills to become their own payee.
Program Success Monitored By

BFMA uses an electronic client management system to document the number of interactions with each client. Case workers monitor adherence to budget and note client progress toward individualized goals. Data indicates clients who have engaged in Financial Literacy activities have made modest gains in savings and sticking to their budgets. Data proves clients achieved stable housing and reduced debt. New VOIP tabulates calls to and from clients to insure timely response. BFMA supervisors hold monthly meetings to discuss client issues and solutions to rectify the situation. Recently staff replaced cumbersome, expensive paper processes with electronic forms for address changes and check requests. BFMA administers a yearly client survey to gauge satisfaction. 90% of clients are highly satisfied with service and clients indicate they trust the counselors. BFMA provides clients with reports similar to bank statements about their expenditures.

Examples of Program Success
 BFMA meets the goal of providing expert financial management and counseling for 750 individuals yearly.  A steady flow of client referrals comes from the Social Security Administration and mental health agencies because BFMA reliably assists clients in establishing stable, effective financial management that leads to improved mental health and general well-being. The Jackson County Community Mental Health Fund staff review BFMA client records and verify residents with mental health issues receive services to prevent homelessness and improve financial stability. At least 90% of clients are permanently housed and 98% of clients have uninterrupted income. Before coming to BFMA these clients sporadically received unreliable income that often was used inappropriately rather than for the benefit of the recipient. Clients express relief that creditors are redirected to BFMA staff. Through Financial Literacy classes clients learned to avoid scams and rebuff hard sell techniques.  
CEO Comments

BFMA provides supportive services for chronically mentally ill people with the goal of financial stability. Competing for financial support with large, clinically oriented organizations challenges BFMA.  Grant income must close the gap between the fees for service and the actual cost of financial counseling. BFMA is an organizational representative payee established to help disabled people wisely manage their finances.  BFMA transforms the daily life of an individual who has been taken advantage of economically and emotionally by others who have a selfish motive when they promise to "help" this person with money matters. BFMA fosters financial stability by providing budgeting, bill payment, and advocacy. Our services enable the people we serve to live independently with dignity, but we do not provide clinical counseling. However, the peace of mind that comes with economic stability makes it possible for a client to concentrate on improving their mental health with clinical case workers. Bill payment alone is not enough. BFMA provides Financial Literacy training where clients learn about the importance of budgeting and avoiding harmful outcomes of budget breaking behaviors. Finding funding to continue classes is difficult. Funding to update IT equipment and software because financial and case records must be accurate and up to date is challenging. BFMA received a grant to replace the outdated, failing computers and server.  New software will revolutionize communication, accountability transparency, cost effectiveness efficiency and reliability.  BFMA has identified the addition of a lead case worker who can provide uninterrupted leadership and oversight for case managers as a priority.  The executive director inspires staff to work compassionately and accurately, but she works in other capacities and needs a lead case worker. Renovation has greatly improved the functionality and safety of the office. The installation of energy saving but expensive window coverings would improve lighting and temperature control. Program delivery is impaired when staff struggle with inadequate light. The staff salaries are below industry standards and funding health benefits challenges BFMA. Funding staff training that leads to empathetic and practical counseling, cultural competence, and meaningful referrals for health needs, housing needs, and healthy solutions to personal problems challenges BFMA. Modest salary increases and enhanced training for staff have led to exceptional client satisfaction, but the Board is still challenged to provide appropriate staff compensation.

Experience

Jennifer joined BFMA 14 years ago and understands all aspects of the program. She is familiar with the client needs and demonstrates empathy and commitment to them. Jennifer has strong relationships with colleagues in agencies that serve the mentally ill. She informs other service providers about the supportive services BFMA provides. Jennifer's experience as a case worker, supervisor, and tax clinic coordinator, gave her detailed familiarity with the training BFMA must provide for staff. Jennifer completed her MPA in 2013. This accomplishment illustrates her willingness to constantly improve her professional skills. Jennifer generates detailed, well documented compliance reports to funders, and studies statistical information to gain insights about unmet need. Jennifer handles personnel issues with fairness and objectivity. One of her outstanding qualities is the ability to envision an agency that changes to meet the evolving needs of clients. She and the Board have acquired funding to replace out dated and inefficient IT equipment with new hardware and software. The possibilities of electronic conferencing with clients and colleagues inspires Jennifer.  Recently she spearheaded a grant funded project that enabled BFMA to begin using electronic forms to change address information for clients and eliminate a costly, error prone paper system. She has vision for the continuing growth of BFMA. She is working with the staff as they enhance their presence in outlying service areas including St. Joseph and Springfield where services are needed. She has learned to work effectively with the Board of Directors to develop strategic plans and accomplish the goals they set for BFMA. Jennifer accepted an invitation to serve on the Senior Companion Advisory Committee. When an unexpected event creates a crisis, she calmly assesses the situation and then acts. She inspires staff to provide excellent care for clients who can be very difficult because of their disabilities.

Collaborations

BFMA collaborates with mental health providers such as Truman Medical Center, ReDiscover, Comprehensive, and Swope Parkway Center, with Social Security, and the Jackson County Mental Health Levy Fund. These organizations refer clients who need supportive services, and they depend on BFMA to be reliable and compassionate. BFMA also works with landlords and agencies who place the homeless in transitional and permanent housing. Shelters, group homes, and long term care facilities also work with BFMA. The banks, utility companies and Money Network (the provider of client pay cards) recognize the difficulties faced by BFMA clients and cooperate with BFMA by waiving fees and helpfully accommodating BFMA clients.

CEO Comments

As the director of BFMA, I am impressed with the dedication of the degreed staff who carry on the mission of BFMA which is fostering financial self-sufficiency and enhancing the quality of life for persons with disabilities. The financial management and advocacy provided by case workers is integral to promoting the greatest degree of client autonomy and independence. Other staff members perform bookkeeping and reporting functions that provide public and private funding agencies assurance of responsible, accurate and professional financial record keeping and grant compliance. It is a challenge to retain outstanding staff because BFMA salaries are low compared with industry standards. While the office is more attractive and safe now, more renovation is needed to provide a pleasant, safe environment. Another challenge is proving training to enhance the efficient and most effective use of new IT software that enhances communication with colleagues and clients and improves service.  The agency can improve service with the addition of a lead case worker who will be available to case workers to guide them when dealing with difficult client issues. Governance is provided by a volunteer Board of Directors, all of whom are professional persons in the Kansas City community. They participate by providing financial and in kind gifts. They are committed to the mission of BFMA and ably fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities. Recruiting new Board members with needed skills and interest is a challenge.

The most persistent and toughest challenge is to improve financial resources for BFMA. Client fees, United Way and Jackson County Mental Health Levy funds supplement client fees and support excellence in service. It is a challenge to compete for grants from foundations because BFMA provides critical supportive services, but it does not provide clinical services. Finding funding to nurture individual donors and increase the donor base is especially challenging.

CEO Comments

Governance is provided by a volunteer Board of Directors, all of whom are professional persons in the Kansas City community. Board members welcome new members and participate in their orientation. The Board recruits additional members when a vacancy occurs being mindful of the skills and expertise the board requires. This group participates through financial gifts and in kind gifts. Board members fully participated in the renovation with sweat equity. Yearly they update the strategic plan and this year named project teams. The IT project team has worked with staff and the IT consultant to obtain bids for VoIP service and select the provider who best meets BFMA communication needs. Another project team has examined BFMA use of ACH electronic transactions and made suggestions for increased usage in order to decrease the use of paper checks. Paper checks are costly in terms of labor and postage. Board members are devoted to the mission of BFMA and ably fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities. Board members extend the separation of duties of the small staff by monthly reviews of financial transactions and financial reports.

Board members provide guidance through policies regarding service delivery. They are serious about being sure staff foster economic self-sufficiency and enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities and mental health issues. The Board provides capable oversight of bookkeeping and reporting functions and gives assurance of excellent, accurate, timely grant compliance.

The Board members are challenged to provide funding that enables BFMA to maintain an adequate IT environment that allows staff to properly manage millions of dollars on behalf of clients. The electronic client management system is integral to service delivery and provides a precise record of all client and staff transactions. Board members are challenged to provide appropriate salary for staff members who have many record keeping skills along with compassionate and effective counseling skills. In a clinical environment staff with similar skills is better compensated.  The Board recognizes the need to provide training for staff that enhances their record keeping and money management skills and training that enables them to continue to develop their counseling skills.  Clients need to be able to trust BFMA for reliable financial management and skillful, compassionate counseling.

Organization Comments

BFMA has experienced generous grant support recently to expand operations to under-served Cass, Clay, and Greene Counties where case workers requested BFMA expertise. Updated IT hardware and software recently replaced aging, inefficient equipment. New software gives BFMA the opportunity to provide improved connectivity with colleagues and clients. Increased electronic bill payment costs less than producing paper checks. The addition of VOIP allows BFMA to accurately track all calls to and from clients. Response time is verified and excessive calls from a client are monitored so these individuals can be referred to their mental health providers. The electronic client management system and financial management system was upgraded to allow for more client counseling and less repetitive data entry.

Professional money management is essential because clients must rely on BFMA to responsibly pay bills and account for their funds, but securing funding for adequate salary remains a challenge. To continue providing quality service, an additional staff member must be added soon. It is not possible to fund this position with fee for service funds, so BFMA will seek additional grant funding for a lead case worker who can provide leadership and oversight for case workers. The executive director is not always available to guide workers when their clients face particularly difficult crises.

BFMA is dedicated to outstanding stewardship of donated funds and can document the impact BFMA has on the lives of clients. Again and again they tell case workers that BFMA helps them to have financial security and the peace of mind that comes from knowing the rent and utilities are paid and there is enough money left for food. Because BFMA is a small agency with a very specific mission, potential donors are unaware of the importance of our work with disabled people who face challenging mental health issues. While BFMA is not a clinical agency, BFMA provides supportive services that enable clients to live safely with financial security. BFMA needs funds to develop a video presentation about this agency. In short BFMA has a track record of successfully applying for grant s and then responsibly and reliably using that funding to improve services. BFMA will continue applying for funding to improve the lives of our clients.
