About Credit Counseling Center’s HOME STRONG Project

The HOME STRONG Project serves two distinct areas of the housing industry: 1.) Homebuyer Education and Counseling services, and 2.) Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention and Intervention services. These services are provided at no cost to consumers of PA.

We firmly believe that regardless of whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, ongoing education and counseling are invaluable tools in navigating the complexities of homeownership. The HOME STRONG Project also serves as a pivotal intervention, offering indispensable assistance to homeowners who are facing the imminent threat of losing their homes.

Your support, whether through individual donations, sponsorships, or grants, is instrumental in helping us provide crucial counseling services to our community and plays a vital role in empowering individuals and families with the knowledge and resources needed to achieve sustainable homeownership.

Together, we are making a meaningful difference in the lives of our community members.

Our mission is to promote financial literacy and empower individuals with the skills they need to make informed, confident decisions about their finances. By attending our fundraisers, you’re contributing to a brighter, financially literate future for members of our community.


About Credit Counseling Center

Credit Counseling Center is so proud to be celebrating our 30th year of service to the the community. Through funding, grants and the support of our donors, we’ve grown as a leading agency for financial literacy in Pennsylvania, and have helped more than 100,000 individuals and families take control of their financial lives since our organization was founded in 1994.

Our work continues to evolve, and we continue to need your support. As a HUD-approved 501c3 non-profit and a Pennsylvania Housing Finance Partner Agency (PHFA), CCC is known as a top organization in the state for foreclosure prevention and has helped thousands of families stay in their homes. CCC guides individuals through free comprehensive credit and housing counseling, financial literacy education and access to resources. Last year we added two new counseling offices on the campuses of Bucks County Community College.

Why Support Financial Literacy?

Financial literacy is more than just understanding numbers; it’s about gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the complex world of managing money. With 76% of families living paycheck to paycheck, many live with severe financial stress and debt. Most people were never taught how to manage money effectively, which prevents them thriving and feeling secure. Your support makes a tangible difference.

NOTE: All Sponsorship Levels Are Sold Out!!

By attending our fundraiser, you’re directly helping us by generating funds to:


  • Provide free counseling sessions to Pennsylvania residents that teach them budgeting, saving, investing, and more.
  • Reach underserved communities and empower them with the tools for financial independence.
  • Help families avoid foreclosure or eviction and stay in their homes, through housing-related programs.
  • Resolve delinquencies for mortgages, utility bills and credit card payments, so loans can be paid back in ways that are manageable. 
  • Hold workshops and online seminars to teach practical skills and spread awareness.
