Financial Counseling



Our counseling sessions include a detailed credit counseling financial work-up comparing (income to expenses) to determine the deficit between the two entities. After making this comparison on a computer print-out, we explain how to effectively create an affordable household budget and develop a plan of action to reduce and consolidate household debts as well as to explore ways to increase income. More and more area homeowners and coop owners as well as out of area residents are seeking ways to reduce their monthly home and family expenses. They also want to know the consequences of their indebtedness and how it affects their future borrowing credit. The impact of our financial education allows residents to remain in their homes, relieves their anxiety about paying their high mortgage and monthly expenses and creates a realistic family budget.
