Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, the industry leader providing credit counseling and debt management programs throughout the United States, has joined the Florida Panthers and the BankAtlantic Center to bring personal finance education to the South Florida community.
"Providing financial education, credit counseling and debt management assistance is a crucial component to consumers' financial well-being and vital in our fragile South Florida economy," said Howard Dvorkin, founder and spokesperson of Consolidated Credit Counseling Services who came up with the idea of offering financial education to consumers at the South Florida arena.

The agency will provide free educational booklets on a dozen financial education topics ranging from how to deal with credit card debt and budgeting issues to talking money with your kids.
