To speak with
Our certified credit counselors about your financial situation
Since 1998, CESI has been a trusted non-profit resource for more than a million individuals struggling financially, by offering counseling and financial solutions to address their crushing unsecured debt burden while providing ongoing support to help consumers make better financial choices every day.
CESI was founded by Dr. Diane Chen on Octo ber 19, 1998 with just a handful of employees. In a few short years, CESI became one of the largest and most trusted non-profit credit counseling agencies in the nation by disregarding traditional methods and implementing process and technology innovations that embraced the way consumers wanted and needed help, growing to serve more than 80,000 consumers annually. CESI relocated its corporate headquarters from Fayetteville to Raleigh in 2007.
CESI recognized a need to provide consumers with the tools to achieve economic security and gain the financial education to build a sustainable financial future. This was the company’s motivation and founding spirit in 1998, and remains the same today. Over the last two decades, CESI has achieved this goal of helping consumers achieve financial freedom by offering a complete life cycle of financial services including credit counseling, debt management services, housing counseling, foreclosure prevention counseling, reverse mortgage counseling, financial education, pre-filing bankruptcy counseling and post-filing debtor education. Under our Assure Money Brand, we were also able to aid seniors with assisted bill pay.
Consumer Education Services, Inc. empowers people to overcome their financial challenges and lead financially-healthy lives.
