Financial Wellness Coaching
Our certified housing counselors help guide you to your financial goals in one-on-one appointments, offered in-person or remotely based on your preference and availability. At your first appointment, we'll pull a tri-merge credit report, which accesses data from all three credit reporting agencies so that you have the most up-to-date snapshot of your financial picture. We employ a coaching model to guide you through goal setting exercises and help you chart a roadmap to your own financial future. You set the goals; we help you get there.
