About Us

About RethinkingDebt and RethinkingDebt.org

Over forty five years of nonprofit consumer credit counseling and financial education services

The history of our organization began over 45 years ago in Rochester, New York. In the early 1970's, the use of credit cards became a significant part of the American way of life. Unfortunately, many people got into financial trouble by borrowing too much. Our local franchise, Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Rochester, emerged in 1970 to focus on the financial wellness of families and individuals. We offered credit counseling and financial education services directly to consumers.
