Merits of Credit Counselling
Credit Counselling is extremely valuable
when compared to the potential cost to society without this service.
Over indebtedness is both an economic and social problem. Excessive
debt can cripple a persons potential, destroy family unity and cause
severe mental anguish. Economically, the consequences can be detrimental
to all those involved including creditors and the community.
Individuals and families in Ontario
have the opportunity through Credit Counselling to resolve their debt
and money management problems while at the same time reduce their
stress dramatically, restore family unity, regain self esteem and
establish a sense of well being.
Thanks to the generous support of
the United Way, creditors, and the community, Credit Counselling Service
of Sault Ste. Marie & District is here to help.
