CESI Open House Encourages Community to Put Down Fears, Pick Up Paintbrushes for “Wall of Hope”

Event also celebrates the Raleigh-based nonprofit’s new headquarters and 12 years of helping Americans become debt-free.

Raleigh, NC – October 14, 2010– Consumer Education Services, Inc., a Raleigh-based, national nonprofit association helping Americans manage debt and buy and keep their homes, is hosting a VIP, invitation-only Open House Celebration on October 19, 2010 in their new headquarters.

The organization employs over 125 Triangle residents. Due to this tremendous growth over the last three years, the organization relocated its headquarters to 3700 Barrett Drive in Raleigh.

Guests will paint a “Wall of Hope”, a mural that will adorn the new space. The mural symbolizes the hope that CESI has installed in the local economy, and hundreds of thousands of people nationwide who have been helped by the organization.

In attendance will be local residents, who with the help of CESI counselors, have dug themselves out of mounds of debt to start a new debt-free life and residents who have learned money management skills from local CESI counselors, enabling them to prevent foreclosures and buy houses. Local dignitaries, politicians, bankers, realtors, and other CESI partners will attend as well.

“It’s a great feeling for our employees to know that they have helped more than 120,000 people – 300 of them Triangle residents – in dire straits turn it around, learn how to live debt free and keep their homes during this recession,” says CESI founder and CEO Dr. Diane Chen.

Dr. Chen will also announce a special partnership with the City of Durham and local nonprofit homebuilder, Builders of Hope, that is helping dozens Durham residents buy new homes.

She adds, “We’re excited to keep the momentum going and about the community joining us in our housewarming celebration.”

October 19 is also the organization’s 12-year anniversary.
