NEW 1-800 NUMBER FOR FREE FINANCIAL COUNSELING

 FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, getting financial counseling is as easy as 1-800. Credit Counseling Centers, Inc. (CCC), a non-profit counseling agency, has added a toll-free number to their services. For over 30 years, CCC has been providing free counseling and education to the public on budgeting, housing and financial problems. Trained counselors recommend solutions for reducing expenses and advise clients on ways to increase their income. Now, anyone can call 1-800-547-5005 to hear a recording that informs callers on office locations.
 So far this year, CCC has helped 6,826 people resolve their money problems with housing issues, auto repossessions, foreclosures, and utility shut-off. Debt repayment programs, based on ability to pay, are offered to those who need more assistance with their finances.
 Both clients and the community are benefiting from the program. Since January of 1993, CCC has helped clients pay back more than $25 million to their creditors. Debt management programs aided 5,781 clients in paying back $4 million to their creditors with CCC's help during the month of May. Many creditors waive late fees, reduce interest, or delay legal action because of CCC's negotiations.
