Become Financially Empowered

The Racine Financial Empowerment Center (FEC)’s services are available to all City residents regardless of income.

The Racine FEC opened in December of 2020 and already has helped nearly 200 City residents. These City residents using the FEC have already reduced $200,000 in debts, increased their savings by almost $80,000, and dozens have raised their credit scores by 35+ points!

The Racine FEC’s professional, certified financial counselors can help you reduce your debts, improve your credit, create a budget, grow your savings, connect to safe and affordable financial products, plan for home ownership, and much more. Our counselors will become your personal financial coaches, helping you make a plan that’s realistic for you, and encouraging and empowering you every step of the way to achieve your financial goals!

Make your first appointment with the Racine FEC here or by calling 262-200-0831. Learn more about the Racine FEC here, or on our Facebook page.
