Welcoming Financial Fitness into our local portfolio

Family Services Windsor-Essex is excited to announce the integration of Financial Fitness (non-profit credit counselling) into our local service portfolio.

Joyce & Wendy - Integration Announcement July 2019

In a Capital One Nov 2018 Survey, 30% of Canadians mentioned that financial stress is a bigger worry than their overall health. 48% of Canadians say they’ve lost sleep because of financial worries, the Financial and Consumer Agency of Canada tells us.  

Family Services Windsor-Essex (FSWE) decided there was something we could do about it in our local community.  While FSWE has always supported people to help manage their stress, our collaboration with Financial Fitness will give us extra tools to support people whose stress is caused by debt, precarious employment, budgeting, savings or retirement issues and the rising cost of living.

Financial counselling and education is now our specialty within Financial Fitness services.  As the leading experts in Credit Counselling for the Windsor-Essex, Sarnia-Lambton areas, we have a solution for every financial problem. 

Whether people are dealing with debt or just need someone to help  set up a family budget plan, we now offer a complete range of financial services:  

  • Free Consultation
  • Budgeting Sessions
  • Deb Management Program
  • Financial Coaching
  • Financial Literacy Workshops
