Financial counseling with the Financial Empowerment Center has helped clients achieve and exceed their goals.
Imagine what a session could do for you!
Felicia came to the Akron FEC because she was a victim of identity theft, which gravely impacted her credit score. “I had issues financing my car and even trying to find my first apartment. I had been trying hard to dispute the things I didn’t do, but I needed a financial counselor to help.”
With the help of her counselor, Felicia was able to dispute these issues and raise her credit score 70 points. “One of my main goals was to raise my credit score so that it can be high when I am ready to own a home.”
Alan was living in his car, suffering from the financial stress of student loans and credit card debt. “I was a mess with my finances. I never thought I could get out it.”
In just one year of working with a counselor at the Financial Empowerment Center, Alan increased his credit score by 100 points, to a score that allowed him to refinance his house, which has lowered his monthly payments by nearly $400.
I wanted to say thank you so much to Mr. Juan Lozada. The information and knowledge that he shared during our meeting was more than helpful. We were able to apply for a car loan with confidence and security. Not only did he provide the information in a clear and concise manner, he filled me with the confidence and security to know that I had someone who I could trust and rely on.
