Fort Lauderdale, FL (PressExposure) July 13, 2011 -- With June unemployment numbers ticking up to 9.2% and the nation's economic recovery slowing to a crawl, the nonprofit debt management firm A New Horizon Credit Counseling is taking unprecedented steps to alleviate consumer debt. The organization is enrolling clients for free - and giving them $100 just for joining.
A New Horizon, a nationwide nonprofit debt management organization, renegotiates and consolidates debt for consumers who carry high balances and/or interest rates on their credit cards. Citing recent disappointing economic indicators, the organization has instituted its new "Win-Win Program," which not only allows clients to join for free, but also pays them $100 to get started on the road to their own financial recovery. Stephen Marcus, President of A New Horizon, stated that his organization's new "Win-Win Program" was off to a strong start.
"Many people are truly struggling to pay their bills every month," said Marcus, "and this new program helps to put them on the path to financial freedom." The program, which rewards new clients with $100 to join, will be offered for a limited time and is intended to provide assistance to people suffering from the sluggish economic recovery.
Marcus, whose organization also provides financial literacy and credit counseling services, hopes that the new program will attract consumers who may have been ignoring their finances. Marcus noted that his organization is "concerned that so many consumers have just given up on their finances and started ignoring their bills. Our program can really help people avoid that pitfall." Experts note that nonprofit debt management can be helpful for people struggling to pay their bills, and caution that consumers should seek help before they find themselves in default.
