SAN ANTONIO – A non-profit consumer credit counseling agency has received a $150,000 grant from the Texas Veterans Commission to provide free financial coaching to Texas veterans and their families.

(See news interview at the bottom of this page with GreenPath counselors Gladys Harris and Federico Pena.)

GreenPath says they know veterans deal with a lot of changes when transitioning out of the military, and their counselors can help get them on track financially.

"Over the last three years, we have seen continued growth in demand for financial counseling services from Texas Veterans, and we expect that demand will continue to continue to increase," said Bill Druliner, GreenPath Community Engagement Manager. "We are grateful to the Texas Veterans Commission's Fund for Veterans' Assistance for this grant funding, which will expand the availability of much-needed financial counseling and advice to those who have served our country."

Veterans who participate in a free GreenPath financial coaching session will develop short- and long-term financial goals, including a personal budget, and a plan for reducing debt, if needed.

To find out more, veterans can call 866-648-8122, visit the GreenPath website, visit either of their two San Antonio locations (Balcones Heights or East Side, or follow them on Twitter and/or Facebook.
