Seattle Financial Empowerment Centers Open

Seattle residents looking for one-on-one financial help may not need to go far.

Financial Empowerment Centers have opened around Seattle to assist residents with their finances.

A Financial Empowerment Center provides free, professional, one-on-one financial education, counseling, and coaching to help people to become financially stable.
Visitors to a Financial Empowerment Center can work one-on-one with a Financial Counselor to:
  • Open a safe and affordable bank account
  • Establish or improve your credit score
  • Decrease debt
  • Increase savings
The Financial Empowerment Centers were able to open thanks to a $1.8 million grant from The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. The unique public-private partnership will be a collaboration between The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, City of Seattle, and the Seattle-based nonprofit Neighborhood House.
