“C” Gets an A in Finances

“C” first came to Easter Seals Greater Houston as a participant in a Credit Workshop hosted by Volunteers of America Conroe.  She decided to set up a one-on-one coaching appointment for herself and her husband.  She entered Easter Seals Greater Houston’s Financial Coaching Program with bad credit, $8,000 worth of debt and a family budget that was out of control.  Her goal was to stick to a set monthly budget, reduce her debt and improve her credit score in order to buy her first home.  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and campus restrictions, she was unable to finish her nursing program training, however she has diligently worked to communicate with and pay off creditors, reduce debt and spend less money each month.  Her credit score improved from a 520 to a 637, she reduced her debt from $8,000 to $184, and she decreased her monthly expenses by $1,814.  We are so proud of C!
