Washington Credit Counseling

By: Ronnica Rothe

Residents of Washington state like you can benefit from credit counseling if you are suffering from any amount of credit card debt. There are reputable credit counseling organizations ready and able to help you get a better understanding of your financial situation and options.

If you are struggling with credit card debt, it may be hard to see the way out. Because credit cards carry such large interest rates, even carrying a moderate balance will keep you in debt for some time unless you have the excess income to make substantial payments.

Once you have determined you need help, it's difficult to determine who you can trust. Television, radio, the Internet, and billboards are filled with ads offering help with credit card debt that can offer some pretty farfetched things. You will want to make sure you are talking to someone you can trust. There are several organizations serving the Washington area that are dependable and helpful.

Vision Credit Education, Inc. provides credit counseling for those in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, and Vancouver and the surrounding regions. CCCS of Yakima Valley serves those in Yakima, Ellensburg, Moses Lake, Sunnyside, and Wenatchee. If you are in Olympia, University Place, Fort Lewis, Kirkland, or McChord Air Force Base, CCCS of Olympic - South Sound can help you. ClearPoint Financial Solutions, Inc. services Everett and Kent. The Tri-Cities area including Kennewick, Pasco, Richland, and Walla Walla is served by CCCS of the Tri-Cities. Pullman, Washington is served by CCCS of Northern Idaho.

Any of these organizations can help answer your questions about credit card debt and possible debt solutions. They are nonprofit so they have a goal of being informative and not merely trying to sell a program or service. Talking to an accredited credit counselor can help you make the decisions your family needs to make as to how to escape debt.
