In coaching, you are in charge of your own goal. To be successful, you must be willing to work hard, communicate with your coach on a regular basis, and learn new habits.
Coaching is FREE and open to individuals of all income levels.

How long will I be in coaching?
You can participate in coaching for as long as you need to reach your goal. Sessions can be held in person, over the phone, or by email. You set the pace for the frequency of your contacts with your coach. Some people are in coaching for a year. When you start, you will need to meet at least once a month for three months.
Where do I meet with my coach?
Coaching is currently provided through two locations: YW Offices located at Central Expressway and Fitzhugh or Mountain View Community College in Dallas' southern sector. You select the location most convenient for you.
Is there a fee for working with a coach?
All services are provided at no cost to you.
Who are the YW coaches?
YW Coaches are experienced in working with families. All are bilingual. (Se hablan Español.) Meet the team:
Caazena Hunter joined YW in 2011 as a Financial Coach, after working with other area non-profits and teaching Sociology at the University of North Texas. Ms. Hunter received her B.A. from the University of Tulsa, and M.A. from the University of North Texas, where she is also pursuing her Ph.D. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family and traveling. A few of her favorite trips include Egypt, Beijing and Little Havana in Miami.
Rebecca (Becca) Fritze joined YW as a Financial Coach in 2012 after two years of living in the Dominican Republic working on microfinance initiatives that help women and families start or expand their businesses. Ms. Fritze graduated in 2008 with a B.A. in Political Science and B.A. in Spanish from Trinity University. She feels passionately about programs that empower women (and men too!) to help them help themselves. In her free time, Becca enjoys breaking a sweat, mostly through Latin dance and yoga; traveling to places off the beaten path; improving her word per minute typing speed; and taking care of her pet fish.
Luz Guerrero joined YW as a Financial Coach in 2011. She is a native Texan, and a graduate from Wheelock College in Boston, MA, where she received a B.A. in Social Work in 2007. For nine years she has worked with children and families involved in social services and the public sector. During her experience, she found that she truly enjoys working with families and directly with clients. Some of her guilty pleasures are cheesy reality shows, potato chips and shoes. She is an avid traveler, and spends most of her free time planning her next adventure but, most importantly, she finds time to cheer on her team...Go Cowboys!
