Our focus at Debt Reduction Services has and always will be educating people on how to improve their financial lives so they can have a better overall quality of life. Our comprehensive instructional classes and community outreach programs teach people everything from how to balance a checkbook, to advanced budgeting of income and expenses.

One tool we offer to help clients is our Debt Management Plan for those who are behind with credit card payments and other unsecured debt. Our DMP features our "accelerated repayment plan" which allows your debt to be paid off at a maximum of 60 months, and often at reduced rates of interest, with no late or over limit fees.
