Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Today, Advantage Credit Counseling Service announced that they are now a nationwide credit counseling agency, and they are able to handle business in all 50 states. This is huge news because there are only a handful of national non-profit agencies that are members of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC). Advantage CCS is extremely proud to be one of those few, and to be able to establish a presence that covers the entire United States.
Stephen Piotrowski, President and CEO said “Advantage CCS began the process to become a nationwide provider two years ago. We started the process with the goal to reach more consumers looking for a trusted resource when struggling with their finances.” Mr. Piotrowski went on to say, “We are excited to see this goal accomplished and to be able to provide our counseling services to consumers in all 50 states. Our agency believes in providing our clients with thorough and comprehensive credit counseling services with the client’s best interest as our number one goal. We are proud to extend our coverage area to the entire nation and are eager to offer our services to consumers who are in need of financial counseling.”
As a non-profit credit counseling organization that was incorporated in 1968, Advantage Credit Counseling Service educates consumers about debt management, and the responsible use of credit. The agency does this through online articles, blog posts, free calculators and tools, social media, classes, and outreach programs. The agency enlightens and assists thousands of people each year by offering confidential credit counseling, debt management plans, and much more. The non-profit credit counseling services of Advantage CCS enhance consumers’ lives, their family stability, and ultimately the community.
Heather Murray, Manager of Education and Regulatory Compliance, at Advantage CCS had this to say about becoming a national organization, “The Agency worked extremely hard to become a nationwide provider of credit counseling and debt management services. It was through the leadership of the Agency’s President and Board of Directors that we were able to accomplish our goal, and can now provide our high quality counseling services to consumers anywhere in the United States.”
It was extremely important to Advantage CCS that they grow as a company even when their industry was in a recession and other agencies were just trying to stay afloat. They knew that they had to expand and grow to reach more consumers and help more people. Being stagnant was not an option for Advantage CCS, so they set an enormous goal and they reached it.
Advantage Credit Counseling Service provides private online counseling through their intelligent decision-based credit counseling system that’s available 24/7. This is the first system of its kind to actually provide personalized debt counseling advice and propose, if appropriate, whether or not a debt management plan is the correct option for that consumer. The credit counseling system uses a complex algorithm and it will analyze your complete financial situation. The consumer will receive a budget breakdown, as well as a customized Action Plan with helpful links, tips, and debt reduction resources.
Advantage CCS provides free credit counseling, debt management plans, bankruptcy counseling, bankruptcy education, housing counseling, financial education, money management workshops, budgeting services, and more. They are accredited by the Council on Accreditation, and are members of the Better Business Bureau of Western PA with an A+ rating.
