Consumer Credit Counseling changes name

Posted: Friday, November 2, 2012

Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Northeastern Indiana, a non-profit credit counseling organization helping individuals and families achieve financial stability since 1965, is changing its name to FinancialHope Counseling and Education.

The recent economic downturn has increased the need for financial coaching and education. The new name better reflects the services currently provided.  FinancialHope Counseling and Education will continue to offer free counseling and education to Fort Wayne and outlying areas, provide reverse mortgage, foreclosure prevention, bankruptcy pre-filing and education, budget and debt management services.

“Under the new FinancialHope Counseling and Education name, we want to help people understand they have a trusted partner on their journey toward sound money management,” stated Joe Schenkel, president of FinancialHope. “Our name may be changing but we are still dedicated to giving trusted financial advice and guidance,” Schenkel concluded.

If you or someone you know is facing financial crisis, please contact the office at (260) 432-8200 or toll free (800) 432-0420.  FinancialHope can also be reached at  The Fort Wayne office is located at 4105 W. Jefferson Boulevard and satellite offices in Warsaw, Auburn and Huntington serve those in the outlying counties.

FinancialHope will be holding an open house and ribbon cutting at the Fort Wayne office on Monday, November 19 from 3 to 5 p.m. which is open to the community. Please join Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry and other community dignitaries in celebrating FinancialHope in northeastern Indiana.
