The COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted businesses’ and residents’ ability to earn and people are making tough decisions about how to use limited resources. The Financial Empowerment Center provides free counseling to help residents plan during this period of financial uncertainty.
Our team of four certified professional counselors are available for free one-on-one sessions to help people focus on their specific situations with a tailored individual approach. Counselors have extensive training navigating financial systems to help clients reduce debt, build credit, build savings and have access to safe, affordable banking products to manage student loans, consumer debt and long-term financial goal setting.
