American Financial Solutions is one of the nation’s largest non-profit credit and financial counseling agencies.
The mission of AFS is to empower people to improve the quality of their lives through financial education and counseling.
American Financial Solutions helps clients free themselves of the anxiety and stress of credit, debt and financial worries. We offer free financial education and credit counseling services that put clients in control of their financial success. In confidential, one-on-one counseling sessions, our certified credit counselors help clients assess their situation and needs, inform them of options to address their goals and provide ongoing support to see that clients follow their plan. We advise clients on a variety of debt solutions to reduce and repay credit card, medical and other unsecured debt.
For clients who need assistance repaying their unsecured debts, we offer also a Debt Management Plan (DMP). The benefits of the DMP include one monthly payment, reduced or eliminated interest rates, stopping collection calls, and in some cases, bringing past due accounts back to a current status. The DMP can help with unsecured debts, such as credit cards, medical bills, and collection accounts.
