InCharge Credit Counseling Client Success Stories
The best way to see how InCharge helps clients get debt-free and overcome credit problems is to hear from many of the actual people we’ve helped.
Mary was $18,000 in debt and called InCharge when she realized she just couldn’t handle it anymore. “I watched the commercial on TV and called while it was going on,” she said. “I talked with a counselor named David and he was extremely nice. When I hung up, I felt like, ‘this is what I need, this is the answer.'” She found the process easy, “They broke it all down for me, how much it would be every month and it went just like clockwork.” Being back on her feet, Mary feels “like a new person” and says about InCharge, “I appreciate you all, you don’t know how much.”
