Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions (CCCS) and the Consulates of Mexico in Santa Ana, San Diego and Austin are proud to formally announce a joint initiative to promote financial education in the Mexican community. The agreements were signed at the Consulates of Mexico on Tuesday, August 28; Wednesday, August 29; and Thursday, August 30, 2012, respectively.
“We hope that through our partnership, the Mexican community in Santa Ana will benefit from the financial education offered by ClearPoint”, says Alejandra García Williams, Consul General of Mexico in Santa Ana.
“The Consulate General of Mexico in San Diego attaches high importance to financial literacy programs as an effective tool to support the community’s advancement and welfare. We are pleased to establish this new partnership with ClearPoint, which will allow us to strengthen the financial literacy initiatives we have developed in the county of San Diego”, says the Consul General Remedios Gomez Arnau.
“The consulate is promoting financial education programs. Its goal is that Mexican migrants reach services that will provide them with tools for better decision-making with regard to the management of their resources. We hope that the Mexican community will benefit from the services offered by ClearPoint, one of these programs”, says Rosalba Ojeda, Consul General of Mexico in Austin.
Clearpoint has already signed agreements with the Consulates of Mexico in Sacramento, Fresno, Los Angeles and Seattle.
“Thanks to the commitment and support of the Mexican Consulates, ClearPoint is able to expand the reach of our counseling and financial education to members of the Mexican communities in Southern California and Texas”, says ClearPoint’s National Hispanic Relations Manager, Manuel Auza.
These partnerships will broaden ClearPoint’s reach to the community by providing financial education through workshops, courses and seminars on relevant topics of interest for the Mexican communities residing in Santa Ana, San Diego and Austin. ClearPoint already provides credit counseling, housing and bankruptcy counseling services in Spanish, as well as a series of educational videos on its Spanish website.
The alliance with the Consulates will help the Mexican communities in the states of California and Texas have accurate financial information. Given the important purchasing power of these Spanish-speaking communities in San Diego County, Orange County and Austin, this will help consumers make the right decisions about how to manage their own resources in a more efficient way, and how to develop a plan for a better future.
