SparkPoint Contra Costa
With SparkPoint, Clients Grow and Prosper
SparkPoint’s mission is to partner with agencies to empower individuals and families to become financially sustainable and advocates for social change.
SparkPoint clients work one-on-one with a coach who helps to identify goals, develop a step-by-step action plan, and keep clients on track.
Our services focus on three key elements of financial stability and prosperity: managing credit, increasing income and building assets.

The Path to Prosperity
Clients are encouraged to set goals and check in with their coaches on a regular basis. Some of our most successful clients have been with SparkPoint for more than a year.
We define prosperity as 1) earning a self-sufficient income, 2) increasing your credit score to 700+, 3) having no revolving debt, and 4) building enough savings to cover at least three months’ worth of living expenses.

SparkPoint Success by the Numbers
|“I worked at the same grocery store for 14 years before health issues forced me to quit. As a single mom, I struggled to provide for my family even with a job, so when I fell on hard times, I felt completely lost. Then I found SparkPoint. They helped me find a job, make a budget and savings plan, and get out of debt. With their help, I raised my credit score by 100 points!”|
