KETC’s Living St. Louis program recently featured a segment on credit counseling. Producer Ruth Ezell follows the story of Laurie Ferrer and her family. Like many other Americans, Laurie and her husband became dependent on their credit cards. The Ferrer family was no longer able to pay the minimum balances on all their cards and their interest rates kept getting higher; eventually their debt became too much to handle.
But Laurie and her family sought help, and they found a solution to their debt problems at ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions (formerly known as ClearPoint Financial Solutions). ClearPoint’s counseling services have already helped the Ferrer’s decrease their debt by 25% and they expect to be debt-free in three years.
