FINANCIAL COUNSELING

Two ways to obtain Free Financial Counseling

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' Certified 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;
  • have knowledge of local community services to direct you to for assistance with financial matters;

Counselors 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 9:00amto 5:00pm by emailing Brendan Wilbur  or Kim Ritter.

Laurie and Zoe Hill

Our family's strongest connection to Alternatives started at the Student Credit Union branch at Fall Creek Elementary School. Zoe started as a Saver and I as a Teller five years ago. Zoe is a regular depositor. I started putting money into my savings account on a more regular basis when we realized that it would be a good place to have a vacation account - one we didn't have a debit card or checkbook for. We saved enough for a trip to Zurich to visit friends on sabbatical and then the fast train to Paris.
