A United Way sponsored program, CCCS has served the Chattahoochee Valley for over ten years. CCCS is a division of The Family Center, a non-profit human service agency.

How Does Consumer Credit Counseling Work?
Anyone may contact the CCCS office for a confidential counseling appointment. Individuals may also be referred to CCCS by family, friends, employers, creditors, churches, legal aid organizations, social services, and/or government agencies.

The Debt Management Plan is:
  • A voluntary repayment plan set up between clients and creditors.

  • Credit difficulties.
  • Budgeting of living expenses to determine areas of excess spending.
