GreenPath Providing Free Personal Finance Counseling to Texas Veterans through 2015

Grant from Texas Veterans Commission Runs through December 2015

(SAN ANTONIO, TX – September 30, 2015) — GreenPath, Inc., a nationwide, non-profit consumer credit counseling agency, recently announced that a $150,000 grant from the Texas Veterans Commission has enabled the company to provide free financial coaching to 626 Texas veterans year to date through August.  Furthermore, it reminds veterans that free counseling is available to them and their families until December 31, 2015.

“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 participating 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.


 “We’re helping hundreds of Texas veterans and their families resolve financial concerns and achieve financial goals,” Druliner continued.  “They’re reducing stress and becoming more financially stable.”

GreenPath offers in-person counseling at nine Texas locations including: Austin, McKinney, Plano, Corpus Christi, Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen, and two locations in San Antonio. They also deliver licensed services throughout the United States over the Internet and telephone. For more information or to schedule a free counseling session, call (866) 648-8122..
