FINANCIAL COUNSELING

TWO WAYS TO OBTAIN FINANCIAL COUNSELING, BOTH FREE!

Our goal is to give you the tools necessary for you to become financially self-sufficient. Our hope is that these services will assist you in any way possible to meet your financial goals.

1. We partner with 
BALANCE, a confidential financial counseling and education service. This service, available by phone (and with many online tools as well), is FREE to our members!

2. Sometimes a friendly face makes discussing finances easier. You might choose to contact Alternatives' Financial Counselors instead of calling BALANCE because our Counselors:

  • are well acquainted with Alternatives' products and services and would be able to advise which of our services might help you find your way to financial fitness;
  • has knowledge of local community services to direct you to for assistance with financial matters;

    can help you:
    — determine financial goals
    — develop spending plans
    — help with credit repair
    — help with credit choices

Appointments can be made Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM by e-mailing
Brendan Wilbur  or Becki Hawley.
