How You Can Benefit From a Debt Management Program
Debt relief, debt counseling, debt consolidation, debt negotiations, debt elimination, and debt management all seem to mean the same thing: get rid of debt. With our Debt Management Program we can:
Help you put together a personal or household budget.
Provide you with clarity regarding your current debt situation (whom you owe, how much, and how long it would take to repay at minimum payments.)
Compare your current debt repayment options with a debt management program.
Negotiate new agreements with your creditors on your behalf to lower your interest rates, stop late or over-limit fees, and start reporting your payments as on time rather than late.
Simplify your life by accepting a single payment during the month from you and dispersing it to all of your creditors per their new agreements with you.
Offer you multiple free financial education programs, classes, tools, and materials to increase your ability going forward to avoid similar financial struggles
If you are looking for a program that helps you repay 100% of your debts at more favorable terms, then look no further than Money Fit’s Debt Management Program.

Head Start programs support children’s growth and development in a positive learning environment through a variety of services, which include
Early learning: Children’s readiness for school and beyond is fostered through individualized learning experiences. Through relationships with adults, play, and planned and spontaneous instruction, children grow in many aspects of development. Children progress in social skills and emotional well-being, along with language and literacy learning, and concept development
Health: Each child’s perceptual, motor, and physical development is supported to permit them to fully explore and function in their environment. All children receive health and development screenings, nutritious meals, oral health, and mental health support. Programs connect families with medical, dental, and mental health services to ensure that children are receiving the services they need.
Family well-being: Parents and families are supported in achieving their own goals, such as housing stability, continued education, and financial security. Programs support and strengthen parent-child relationships and engage families around children’s learning and development.

Federal Resource – Medicaid
Authorized by Title XIX of the Social Security Act, Medicaid was signed into law in 1965 alongside Medicare. All states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories have Medicaid programs designed to provide health coverage for low-income people. Although the Federal government establishes certain parameters for all states to follow, each state administers its Medicaid program differently, resulting in variations in Medicaid coverage across the country.
