60 Years of Empowering Financial Health
As we celebrate 60 years as a trusted national nonprofit, GreenPath is staying true to our bold goal to build a new financial culture and system that works for everyone.
60 Years of Trusted Guidance
As a trusted national nonprofit focused on financial wellness for everyone, we’re proud that people have turned to us for more than 60 years as their guide as they navigate debt, foreclosure, bankruptcy, or credit challenges.
At 60 years, we're just getting started. We will know we have succeeded when people feel prepared for life’s ups and downs, and have access to the tools and resources to manage their finances to support their goals. We will know we’ve made it when it’s no longer taboo to talk about debt or finances, and people are helping each other succeed by sharing their stories and tips around the dinner table, in the news, and in the classroom.
Throughout this month we’ve been celebrating a key event.
In August 1961, Albert O. Horner founded GreenPath with a vision: to change lives.
Born out of the Michigan Credit Union League as a budgeting and financial education service, the organization was incorporated as Credit Counseling Centers several years later.
From our beginnings in 1961 as part of a regional credit union, to today as one of the largest, most trusted national nonprofits focused on financial wellness for everyone, it’s a great time to reflect.
We’re proud that people have turned to GreenPath for more than 60 years as their guide to navigate debt, foreclosure, bankruptcy, or credit challenges.
This month as we celebrate GreenPath’s founding in 1961, we are feeling “all the feels” and overwhelmingly, our team is optimistic, hopeful and excited to build on our 60-year legacy as we look to the future.
