Since 1995, the non-profit certified credit counselors at Debt Counseling Corporation have guided thousands of people toward brighter financial futures. Their approach is straightforward: listen to the client describe their goals and financial situation, and then develop an action plan based on that information. Beyond Action Plans, the company can devise strategies for managing debt, share tips for budget planning, and even help formulate short- and long-term goals for clients seeking guidance. Their approach has evidently been successful—they were voted the best debt-consolidation service in 2013 by Best of Long Island, and the company's education director was recently featured as an expert on NBC's The Economic Crisis: Surviving the Storm with Chuck Scarborough. As a non-profit organization, Debt Counseling Corporation also provides many of its ongoing services for free, and also offers bilingual services. Outside of pain-free budgeting, DCC offers bankruptcy services and housing counseling, as well.
