A journey towards debt freedom.

Chris’s Journey Out of Debt

Chris is a musician who fell upon hard times financially and didn’t know how to get himself out of debt. It wasn’t until he asked a friend of his to help lend him some money for rent that he heard about credit counselling. Chris was a little skeptical at first, but once he picked up the phone, his path forward became clear.

Testimonial speech

I feel like I can breathe again

I thought I had everything under control, but then when I couldn’t pay my rent and I had to borrow money from a friend, that’s when I knew things were not good. Having a lot of debt feels burdensome. You feel guilty, you feel ashamed. When I was told about credit counselling, I felt hopeful. I found them to be very sympathetic and they listened and they weren’t judging. They were just offering help. When I paid off my debt, I felt I could breathe again. Credit counselling means someone is there to guide you. You are not alone. Reach out. Ask for help.
