Friday, September 13, 2013

Consumer Credit Counseling Service, a program of Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults, announced that it has received a $2,500 grant from Wells Fargo designated for Homeowner Education and Foreclosure Counseling. CCCS will use these funds to support their homeownership education course “The Keys to Your Future.” 

The first 4 week course is scheduled to begin on September 19 from 6-8 p.m., with classes continuing on subsequent Thursdays.  Covered topics will include: Budgeting and Credit, Obtaining a Mortgage Loan, Shopping for a Home and Protecting Your Investment.

In addition to group coursework, participants will also have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a financial coach to improve their credit scores. Though the course is valued at $125, “The Keys to Your Future” is currently being offered free of charge thanks to the funding received through Wells Fargo, as well as United Way of Chattanooga and the TN Housing Development Agency.

Upon receiving the awarded check from Wells Fargo, CFO Robert Taylor remarked, “We are grateful for the generous support from Wells Fargo and the opportunity to provide this essential education to the community. The Wells Fargo grant will allow individuals to not only be prepared for the unexpected, but also to be equipped with the necessary knowledge to begin home ownership.”

Those interested in participating in “The Keys to Your Future” are invited to contact CCCS by calling 490-5620.
