Consumer Credit Counseling

Many credit counseling organizations are nonprofit and work with you to solve your financial problems. Beware that just because an organization says it is "nonprofit" does not guarantee that its services are free or affordable, or that its services are legitimate. A reputable credit counseling agency should send you free information about itself and its services without requiring you to provide any details about your situation. If an organization does not do that, then consider it a red flag and go elsewhere for help. Below are links and contact information to consumer credit counseling and financial education program resources.
