Where can I get assistance with budgeting, credit, debt consolidation and repayment, bankruptcy, and/or foreclosure?
Apprisen is a national community credit counseling service (previously known as CCCS). “Helping people improve their financial well-being through counseling, community outreach, and financial education” is their mission. They accomplish this by providing a free money management session with a certified financial counselor; counseling related to housing options (such as preventing foreclosure), bankruptcy, and debt repayment to low –to –moderate income individuals and families; and financial education programs.
As noted above, the initial counseling session is free. There are modest fees associated with some of the specialized counseling sessions, but these may be reduced or waived based on income.
The office which serves the Kansas City area is located just down the street from the Central Resource Library.
