Get Free Help Managing Your Money

If you're having trouble managing your money, it might be hard to stay in school. That's why DCCCD has launched a new program to help you with your finances. One bonus: The program will match up to $25 a month that income-eligible students make into a special account.

We've partnered with Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) of Greater Dallas and the Dallas Women's Foundation to provide free, confidential, one-on-one financial counseling and free money management classes.

The new program is called C2: SAFE (College Counts: Securing Assets Through Financial Education). It is free to our students. 

Male students are welcome to participate. However, the Dallas Women's Foundation is particularly interested in helping low-to-moderate-income young women.

Two Ways to Get Started With C2: SAFE 

  1. Call Consumer Credit Counseling Service at 214-540-6836.
  2. Register online at transformanceusa.org/c2safe.

    What Services Do You Get?
  1. Financial counseling/coaching – Meet one-on-one with a counselor to design a plan to manage money. You'll learn how to budget for short- and long-term needs.
  2. Financial webinars/workshops – Short online and in-person workshops will cover managing credit, saving for goals, getting out of debt and more.
  3. CCCS' A.I.M. (Accountable-Inspirational-Motivational) program – CCCS will match up to $25 per month of deposits that income-eligible students make into a special account.  

    DCCCD cares about your success. We hope these free services will help you stay in school and achieve your goals.
