Spread the word: Anyone can get free, virtual financial help from coaches, counselors

AFCPE®, the Wells Fargo Foundation and Yellow Ribbon Network have launched a free, virtual financial counseling and coaching initiative—available to anyone who needs it (regardless of income level).
Published: Thursday, February 04, 2021

AFCPE (Association for Financial Counseling & Planning Education) certified financial counselors and coaches are now offering unbiased and fully confidential virtual financial counseling and coaching sessions. The sessions are free to individuals and families who have questions about their money—regardless of financial situation, and whether COVID-19 has impacted them directly or not.

“The pandemic exposed the financial fragility of many Americans,” said Rebecca Wiggins, executive director of AFCPE. “AFCPE-credentialed financial counselors and coaches are ready to help.”  

AFCPE professionals are not only highly trained in personal finance (operating as Accredited Financial Counselors® or Financial Fitness Coaches®), but they bring cultural awareness and empathy to help those they serve achieve financial security based on their unique needs and goals—whether they be creating a plan to pay off debt, building savings or managing immediate expenses.   

“AFCPE and Consumer Action are long-term partners. We have worked together for many years to help servicemembers, veterans and military families improve their financial health,” said Consumer Action’s director of strategic partnerships, Audrey Perrott. “We were not only ready, but eager, to offer our collaborative expertise to help all individuals and families weather the financial shocks caused by the pandemic.”
