Are you being harassed by creditors demanding impossible payments?

Do you feel alone: have you been rejected and judged by everyone in the financial field?

Money – or the lack of - causes so much stress in our day to day lives.  Not only do we feel trapped but so many of us feel like we will never be free.  Maybe all you need is the reassurance to hear that you are actually doing a good job of managing the money and the issue is simply not ENOUGH money. Spending an hour with Holly Devlin will empower you to take control of your financial situation.  Know your rights, discuss the options and take the first steps towards moving forward.  An appointment with The United Way offers free, objective and confidential financial advice for those who feel they have nowhere else to turn.
