FinancialEmpowermentlogoPhiladelphia’s network of Financial Empowerment Centers provides free one-on-one financial counseling with professionally trained counselors to help clients transition from debt management to saving.

The Financial Empowerment Centers launched in March 2013 with the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies. The project is a joint initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment & Opportunity and its partner, Clarifi, the region’s leading financial counseling non-profit.

As part of the city’s Shared Prosperity Philadelphia program to fight poverty, the Financial Empowerment Centers help to move people towards financial independence.
