Housing Counseling and Financial Literacy - Free Seminars
Free Counseling for Persons/Families in Housing and Financial Crisis
Financial stresses and strains take a psychological toll on the individuals and families. There are many thoughts and feelings that people experience as they face the prospect of foreclosure. Most common among them are embarrassment, isolation, loss of control, stress, feelings of failure, anger and frustration, depression and anxiety, and in extreme cases, thoughts of suicide.
The COE Counseling Clinic is offering free counseling to help those who are struggling with financial problems. We can also provide you with referrals that will help you work through the foreclosure process and begin rebuilding credit.
For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 734-487-4410.
All counseling sessions are held in room 135 or the Porter Building on the campus of Eastern Michigan University.
