Chicago, IL Credit Counseling & Debt Consolidation
The Windy City, along with many areas nationwide, is still feeling some of the effects of the Great Recession. Increasingly, residents are looking for ways to address their debt levels. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports Chicago’s unemployment rate at 5.3% contrasted to the national rate of 4.5% as of August 2017, yet wages are slightly higher than the national average. With a median home price of $285,000 and median rent prices at $1700 per month, it makes sense that more people have begun to seek the help of credit counselors to learn to manage their finances and establish a plan of action to become debt-free.
The famous Route 66 began in Chicago, and with CreditGUARD, you can get on the road–to financial success. As a nonprofit organization, we do not offer debt consolidation loans which actually end up increasing debt and costing more in the long run. Instead, we help you work with your creditors to create a debt management plan to pay off your debts and become debt-free faster.

By developing financial knowledge, healthy spending habits and understanding the best ways to manage your existing debt, you will become empowered to take control of your financial future.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy yourself and unwind, even when you’re working hard to improve your finances. Go for a bike ride along the lakefront. Treat yourself to a cup of coffee at Intelligentsia. Pay a visit to Wrigley Field. Stop off for some deep dish pizza at Giordano’s. Head over to Lincoln Park Zoo (it’s free 365 days per year!). Take a walk through Millennium Park and take some fun pictures under the “Bean.”
