New United Way member offers financial counselling

The United Way of Bruce Grey is proud to welcome Sharon Safra to its team. Sharon will be taking over as our Financial Literacy Coordinator from Caroline Araujo Abbotts who will be leaving shortly on maternity leave.

Safra is a kind, caring and compassionate person who brings with her abundant knowledge and experience working in the financial literacy sector. She also has extensive experience working with newcomers and the farm sector in Grey and Bruce Counties. Her most recent position was with the Windsor-Essex Legal Clinic as a Community Outreach Worker for international workers.

Safra is familiar with local programs and resources geared towards helping low-income clients overcome their money struggles. She is looking forward to helping clients navigate their way through their financial challenges by offering basic financial counselling including budgeting advice and the provision of referrals to other local assistance programs.

If members of the public are looking to improve their financial situation, they can reach out to Safra directly at or 519-378-4773. The program is free, confidential, and open to everyone in Bruce-Grey.

“We wish Caroline the very best as she welcomes her second child to their family,” says Executive Director, Francesca Dobbyn.
