Financial Counseling

Dan's Story

Dan had a modest but steady income as a car salesman until the dealership closed. Dan lost his job and the family health care coverage that he and his wife rely on for their son’s chronic asthma. Burdened by medical bills and falling deeper into debt, Dan met with a JCFS financial counselor, who assisted him in enrolling his children in a free health insurance program and helped him to create a realistic monthly budget. Over the next six months his counselor helped him secure affordable housing, with JCFS providing the security deposit. The family is now feeling stable and secure.
