Having dealt with a less thorough ( honest?) and reliable agency many years ago. I’d like to thank and recommend Shri Thiel and the Client Services team for their patience, knowledge , and flexibility in doing this on line, I’m sorry I couldn’t have done when not a resident - no rip-off here!!

After speaking with 3+ other credit counseling services I found Money Mentors was the only one able to help me all my debts including my student debt which truly felt hopeless. My debt is finally manageable and I look forward to tackling it and becoming debt free! Thanks Jason, Kimberley and Sheri for helping me start the process and for all your hard work and advice with my accounts. 100/10
Linda Mak was very engaging and made the presentation very fun and easy to give feedback about the financial material. Linda was very receptive and professional when given feedback on her presentation and things that might assist her in working with our participants. Love the energy Linda, keep it up!!!Garth
