We Are National!!!
The Agency has a BIG announcement…We are now a nationwide non-profit credit counseling agency, and we’re able to assist consumers in ALL 50 states!!! This is gigantic news because there are only a few national non-profit agencies that are members of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC). We are tremendously proud and excited to be one of those few!
Stephen J. Piotrowski, our President/CEO commented on this wonderful news. Mr. Piotrowski said “The Agency began the process to become a nationwide provider two years ago. We started the process with the goal to reach more consumers who are looking for a trusted resource when struggling with their finances. We are excited to see this goal accomplished and to be able to provide our credit 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 in mind. We are proud to extend our coverage area to the entire nation and we’re eager to offer our services to clients who are in need of financial counseling.”
It was extremely important to us that we grow as a company even when the credit counseling industry was in a bit of a slump, and other agencies were just trying to hang on. We knew that we had to expand and grow to reach more people in need of debt relief. Being dormant was not an option for us, so the Agency set an enormous goal and we are so proud that we reached it.
We provide many financial management and debt relief services, but we are most proud of our online credit counseling system: https://www.advantageuser.org/counseling_php/index.html. This is the 1st system to provide personalized financial counseling advice and propose, if appropriate, whether or not a debt management plan is the best option for you. Our credit counseling system uses a complex algorithm, and it will analyze your complete financial situation. You will receive a full budget breakdown, as well as a customized 20+ page Action Plan with helpful links, tips, and other debt reduction resources.
Some of our other services include: free credit counseling, debt management, bankruptcy counseling, bankruptcy education, a credit report review service, housing counseling, financial education, money managing classes, and budgeting services. We’ve partnered with The Bank On Greater Pittsburgh (BOGP) initiative which involves partnerships among local government officials, financial institutions and community based organizations to develop pathways to access basic, free or low-cost financial institution transaction accounts and financial education. We also hold weekly free money management classes at the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania to help local Vets.
We’re accredited by the Council on Accreditation, and we’re members of the Better Business Bureau of Western PA. We have also been designated a certified comprehensive housing counseling agency by HUD. The Agency is a proud member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) which is the nation’s largest financial counseling organization.
If you are located anywhere in the United States and need financial counseling, debt relief, bankruptcy certificates, or help with creating a budget, then give us a call at 1-866-699-2227 or visit us online at www.advantageccs.org and we’d be glad to help!
