The Home Front Cares is partnering with GreenPath, a 50-year-old nonprofit credit counseling organization, to provide comprehensive financial counseling, education and money management tools to Colorado veterans and service members.
The nonprofit Home Front Cares pays essential life expenses for Colorado veterans and military families in need. As their clients have shifted from primarily active duty to almost entirely veterans in the past few years, the nonprofit has identified a severe need for financial counseling among clients.
“Some of our clients have trouble managing their finances due to PTSD or traumatic brain injuries, and some just don’t know how to manage their finances because they were never taught,” said Amy Cutler, THFC program manager. “If they don’t get their finances back on track with the help of a financial counselor, they may get back into the same situation again. GreenPath can help them, offer them options they probably weren’t aware of, and help them plan better for the future so they can be prepared if another hardship or emergency happens.”
GreenPath is headquartered in Michigan but has four locations in Colorado. GreenPath offers free debt counseling that is personal and tailored to unique situations. GreenPath assists clients with personal and family budgeting, housing counseling, debt management and provides a wide variety of financial education tools and resources.
Since 2003, The Home Front Cares has raised more than $7 million to help Colorado veterans and their families with emergency financial needs including rent and utilities. For more information about The Home Front Cares’ mission, visit thehomefrontcares.org.
