Credit Counseling

Interested in improving your credit? A counselor can advise you on your whole financial picture, help you to evaluate expenses, and provide information on how to improve your credit score.

North Side can work with clients to assess financial products and discuss debt consolidation. In some cases, we refer clients to our national partner, Green Path Debt Solutions.

Housing Assistance

Interested in buying a house? A counselor can help you find out how much you can afford for a mortgage payment and offer information about programs for first-time homebuyers.
Having trouble making payments on your home? A counselor can review your options for either keeping or selling your home and advocate on your behalf with your lender once you decide the path you want to take.

Workshops and Events

North Side hosts financial education classes and seminars for the community, as well as for our Select Employee Partners. We cater to these classes to fit many financial needs.
