Delray Credit Counseling
Delray Credit Counseling Corp, as a charitable organization itself, supports these charities in the local Palm Beach area. We believe that it is important as an organization that we utilize our resources to help the public wherever possible. Through connection with other local charities it is possible to not only share our ability to help consumers with their educational needs but also introduce to our consumers the ability to assist them as well. Though the majority of these charities operate in the Palm Beach area, a consumer could undoubtedly find a similar institution in their area. It doesn’t take a lot for an individual to contribute to the greater good of others when working with agencies such as these.
It is our hope that by assisting other charities in helping their clients with the services that they provide, that we may also contribute to the variety of services that they can offer. And introduce them as a quality charitable organization to others in an attempt to spread the desire to work towards a common good.
