GreenPath enlarges focus from debt to include wellness
Monroe (MI) News
6 April 2016
GreenPath Inc., formerly doing business as GreenPath Debt Solutions, announced that it is now operating as GreenPath Financial Wellness.
The Farmington Hills-based company says that the transition is based on its long-term commitment to guide all consumers through life’s financial challenges, not just those in debt.
“Our new focus on financial wellness better represents the full impact we have on individuals and the communities we serve,” said Donna McNeill, GreenPath chief operating officer. “For example, we don’t just help people manage debt. We empower them to reduce stress, stop living paycheck to paycheck, and take control of their financial future.”
Ms. McNeill went on to explain that GreenPath’s goal is to become the financial health partner that consumers turn to through all phases of their lives.
“We will work closely with consumers who want to make informed financial decisions regarding important life events like marriage, birth of a child, retirement and more,” she said.
Ms. McNeill emphasized that GreenPath’s personal finance experts will continue to serve people with credit card debt, housing, bankruptcy and student loan concerns. In 2015, they assisted more than 200,000 people.
“Historically, we have not extended our working relationship with clients after they became debt-free. We want to continue working with them and positively impact their financial health in other ways,” she said.
GreenPath offers face-to-face services, including a free personal finance counseling session, at about 60 offices in 16 states. The company also offers licensed services by phone and Internet throughout the United States.
