Are you having trouble making ends meet? Do you often find your bank account empty toward the end of each pay period? If so, there is help available, in the form of a free budget counseling session with ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions. The nonprofit’s Springfield branch is moving to 1999 Wabash Avenue. The new location replaces their old office at 975 South Durkin Dr. “ClearPoint has served the Springfield community for over 15 years and we are very happy to continue our commitment to serve the community’s financial education and financial counseling needs,” says Jacqueline Tammenga, ClearPoint’s Illinois area director. The Richmond, Va.-based nonprofit is registered with the Office of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and has four locations in central and southern Illinois. Besides free budgeting sessions, ClearPoint offers free or low-cost credit counseling, HUD-approved pre-purchase and mortgage delinquency counseling, reverse-mortgage counseling, bankruptcy counseling and personal finance education programs. ClearPoint is also approved as a housing counseling agency by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. For more information, call 877-877-1995 or visit
