Our History

Consumer Education Services, Inc. was founded on October 19, 1998, as a nonprofit 501(C)3 organization. Founded by Dr. Diane Chen, CEO, the company had humble beginnings in Fayetteville, NC, with a small handful of employees.

Over the years, CESI quickly grew to become one of the largest and most trusted non-profit credit counseling agencies in the US, eventually employing more than 100 people. CESI relocated its corporate headquarters from Fayetteville, NC to Raleigh, NC in 2007, and moved to its current location in 2010.

In 2009, CESI launched its HUD Certified Housing Counseling department to address the growing need for assistance with issues such as foreclosure prevention and pre-purchase counseling. Since then, the CESI Homeownership Center has assisted nearly many local NC individuals with their housing needs.

Since 1998, CESI has directly assisted more than 400,000 individuals with financial education and helped them manage their debt. More than 75,000 individuals have graduated from CESI’s debt management program and paid their debt in full. CESI has educated thousands of individuals and families in our local community through outreach and education programs.
