When you just can’t seem to get out from under your bills and your family’s future is becoming harder to focus on, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and a little lost. You aren’t. It’s actually the first step to tackling your money issues.
While a call to an NFCC member agency is an important step to solving money problems, the first step is actually facing the fact that you need help, and it’s the hardest. But, once you make the call we can help put you on the right path to resolving your situation.
It’s a situation we understand well. In fact, NFCC and The Ohio State University worked together to survey participants in NFCC’s Sharpen Your Financial Focus™ program we offer. Data from this program found that the type of counseling we provide helped reduce revolving debt levels, specifically for wage-earning mothers, by nearly 49.5% from pre-counseling levels within a year.
How we help and the results you realize depend on you and what you need.
HOW NFCC MEMBER AGENCIES CAN HELP
- Consolidate bills into one smaller payment.
- Pay off your debt faster.
