FARGO – People whose finances have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic can meet with a financial counselor at The Village Family Service Center for no cost.
Thanks to additional funding, The Village is able to offer a limited number of free financial counseling sessions to individuals who experienced a job loss, reduced income or increased expenses because of the coronavirus. There is typically a $25 fee for a session.
Financial counselors can help clients budget, create a financial action plan, or set up a debt management plan.
“Now more than ever is the time for people to take a closer look at their finances and make both short- and long-term plans, regardless of their current financial situation,” said Tina Anim, program director for The Village Financial Resource Center. “Our financial counselors really do care and are here to offer advice and help in a judgment-free environment.”
To protect the health of clients and staff, sessions are currently being offered online or over the phone. To set up an appointment, call 1-800-450-4019, or visit www.HelpwithMoney.org for more information.
