In an effort to ensure that WNC consumers achieve financial stability and reclaim their financial future, OnTrack WNC Financial Education and Counseling is participating in the Sharpen Your Financial Focus™ program. This nationwide initiative, launched by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling® (NFCC®) in partnership with major financial service companies, was developed to allow consumers to take the first step toward achieving their financial goals. OnTrack WNC Financial Education and Counseling, a member of the NFCC, is providing WNC residents with financial reviews, financial self-assessment tools, and educational workshops as a part of the initiative.
“OnTrack WNC Financial Education and Counseling is pleased to be a part of this important program. With support from national financial service companies including Bank of America, Chase, GE Capital Retail Finance, and Wells Fargo, we are able to provide consumers with the financial skills necessary for sound financial management and long-term stability,” remarked OnTrack WNC’s Executive Director Celeste Collins.
