FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) - In an effort to better serve the Hispanic community Consolidated Credit is creating new educational materials in Spanish and disseminating information through social media outlets targeted to Latino families.
"After 19 years of serving the Hispanic community it was time to extend our educational content in the Spanish language," Howard Dvorkin, founder of ConsolidatedCredit.org and CPA, said. "We need to work on teaching the Hispanic community how to successfully manage debt while improving their credit history."
Roughly 30 percent of Consolidated Credit's clients are Hispanic, making them the number one credit counseling agency for Latinos in the United States. Consolidated Credit's program not only helps millions of Latinos to get out of debt, but also assists families in avoiding bankruptcy and rebuilding credit.
In addition to counseling families, Consolidated Credit is revamping its Spanish website to address Latinos' financial concerns. As part of the project, pages about building credit, paying credit card debt and budgeting will be uploaded throughout the year. Also, news articles that directly affect Latinos' finances are currently being published on Consolidated Credit's homepage.
Latinos can provide feedback to Consolidated Credit in Spanish and ask questions through Facebook and Twitter. Both social media channels were created in Spanish in an effort to communicate with users who are interested in reading information about debt, credit and personal finances.
The testimonials provided by Consolidated Credit's graduates demonstrate that once Hispanics finish the program, they are happy to be debt free. "Thanks to this organization I can sleep and I stopped receiving creditors' calls. I recommend this program to those who have similar problems. That's why I want to say: thank you, thank you very much," stated a recent graduate from Consolidated Credit's debt program.
Among the services offered by Consolidated Credit are credit card debt consolidation, personal finance education, foreclosure assistance and budgeting for specific life events.
