Cornerstone Foundation is partnering with GreenPath Financial Wellness, a leading national nonprofit organization, to provide a holistic financial education and counseling program to credit unions and their members in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.
GreenPath’s mission is to empower people to lead financially healthy lives. As a Preferred Financial Capability Service Provider, GreenPath will partner with mission-aligned credit unions to offer a program to engage their members and provide access to free, one-on-one financial counseling, debt management services, and financial education resources.
“Cornerstone Foundation’s mission closely aligns with GreenPath’s,” said Foundation Executive Director Courtney Moran. “Like the Foundation, GreenPath’s guiding principle is to put people at the center of everything they do. Empathy coaching, human-centered design, and behavioral economics practices anchor their work for meeting the needs of credit union members.”
“Credit unions who are concerned about the financial health of their members are now in a better position to provide resources to help them make informed decisions for a bright financial future,” added Moran. “We are excited to bring GreenPath’s robust and comprehensive, client-centered counseling services to our member credit unions in the Cornerstone region.”
GreenPath counselors assess an individual or family’s entire financial picture and identify options that make it easier to plan for a financially healthy future. Caring, certified experts deliver debt counseling to help people manage credit card and consumer debt. GreenPath’s housing counseling includes foreclosure prevention services, rental counseling, homebuyer preparation assistance, and reverse mortgage counseling. GreenPath counselors also provide free student loan counseling.
GreenPath’s financial counseling is free, confidential, and designed to help ease financial stress. Additionally, GreenPath offers robust educational resources to connect with people in the ways they prefer to learn.
“The Cornerstone Foundation family now has access to caring, judgment-free counseling that strengthens financial wellness at every step of the financial journey,” said Kristen Holt, president and CEO of GreenPath Financial Wellness. “As a national nonprofit in service for more than 60 years, GreenPath is ready to help those seeking guidance through our team of HUD-certified Housing Counselors and NFCC certified credit counselors.”
