“In IMPACCT’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.”
— Priscilla Etheridge
