Our comprehensive financial counseling and education services can help people achieve financial independence.
Any consumer contacting BALANCE for counseling services will be provided service regardless of the language they speak. Whenever possible, a client will be paired with a counselor who speaks his or her language. If a client speaks a language other than those of our multilingual counseling staff, the AT&T Language Line will be contacted to schedule a translator for the time of the appointment. BALANCE will pay for the cost of the service.
While there are hundreds of “debt counseling” organizations across the country, we are members of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling and have agreed to quality standards that include accreditation, certification of counselors, audits and core policies that ensure quality service.
Our counseling services range from money management to housing to debt management and everything in between. Our counselors are certified credit report reviewers and know their stuff. They are your financial gurus, here to give you the right guidance and support, whatever your financial situation.
Borrowing to pay for college is the easy part. Repaying the debt is much harder. To know which options are best for you, your career prospects and your budget, it helps to have access to an expert who can guide you through the complexity of the various programs, explain your options under each, and take into account the context of your financial circumstances. BALANCE Credit Counselors speak the language of student loan financing fluently and are ready to work with you in a one-on-one student loan counseling session
Housing can be an overwhelming subject to tackle on your own, whether you are dreaming of owning your first home or struggling to make mortgage payments on your current home. Our counselors are readily available to help you make sense of it all.

We help clients that have trouble keeping up with bills and find themselves spiraling out of control with debt that seems impossible to repay. We are here to throw a lifeline, to help them get a handle on their debt while creating a solution that can get them back to stability.
