We’re Here to Serve YOU

Who We Serve

Since 1994, the Credit Counseling Center has served over 100,000 individuals and families.

As a non-profit we help everyone. Whether you’re struggling or trying to be proactive about your financial future, you need an objective person you can trust to guide you.

With 76% of families living paycheck to paycheck, many are vulnerable with just one $500 repair.

Why is this such a prevalent issue? Most people were never taught how to manage money effectively. That prevents them from being able to feel secure and even thrive.

Too often people feel embarrassed and afraid when it comes to talking about money.

If you’re feeling nervous, you are not alone.

With our confidential Certified Counselors, you’ll be able to take control of your money and experience peace of mind.
