HOUSTON — Consumer Credit Counseling Services of New Jersey (CCCS of NJ), a community-based nonprofit credit counseling agency, has announced its decision to join Money Management International (MMI), the nation’s largest nonprofit full-service credit counseling agency. For nearly 40 years CCCS of NJ has provided New Jersey residents with a wide range of financial education services, including credit counseling, debt management assistance, and community financial education programs.

Together we’re able to reach more consumers in need and provide them with the education and support necessary to overcome their financial setbacks.”

Currently MMI provides consumers with face-to-face financial education and counseling services at over 70 branch locations nationwide, with 24 hour a day, 7 day a week assistance available by telephone and internet. Local residents will continue to have access to in-person counseling and education services through CCCS of NJ’s existing office, located at 185 Ridgedale Ave., in Cedar Knolls, NJ.
