Poor or damaged credit affects individuals and families from all walks of life—but it doesn’t have to hold you back. Our one-on-one credit counseling sessions are a safe, confidential, and affordable way to begin restoring your credit, repaying your debt, and taking charge of your financial future.
During this 75-minute session, our consultant will work with you to put together a Credit Action Plan: a series of concrete steps tailored to your specific situation, to help you reach your personal financial goals. In addition to providing ongoing support and accountability, our professional financial counselor will also (if needed, and with your permission) be prepared to interact directly with creditors on your behalf, to negotiate a reduction in payment or pay-off.
