Improving the Financial Health of Brooklynites

IMPACCT Brooklyn believes that when more residents understand and take ownership of their finances, they can make better financial choices, invest wisely, take ownership of their own lives and, ultimately, build and maintain the communities they live in.
We assist by hosting free Personal Financial Workshops, where we teach individuals how to be in complete control over spending, credit scores, and debt. We also provide one-on-one counseling and guide clients on how to create budget plans, establish new credit, and assist with negotiations and payment agreements with creditors.
Many residents are not able to take advantage of quality housing as a result of poor credit scores or poor financial planning, which negatively impact their applications for rentals or homeownership. IMPACCT Brooklyn offers various services to address that. Currently, we are collaborating with affordable housing programs to assist in helping clients repair and maintain good credit for those seeking future housing. It is important to ensure that credit scores meet the standard qualifications for approval.
Start today by contacting us to schedule an appointment for a one-on-one financial counseling session or register for our next Free Personal Financial Workshop Series. Begin the process of confronting issues regarding spending, budgeting, and planning for a stable financial future.

“In IMPACCT Brooklyn’s financial education course, I learned how to understand my credit report and how to get out of debt so I could buy a home. My credit counselor, Charrisse Smith, was very supportive. I could give her a call anytime if I had any questions, and she kept me focused on my long-term goals.”
