COVID-19 Relief: Yellow Ribbon Network

The Yellow Ribbon Network is an online platform for veterans, active military and their families in need of counseling and resources to help with finances, housing, employment or education. The Yellow Ribbon Network has partnered with AFCPE® (Association for Financial Counseling & Planning Education®), whose mission is to ensure the highest level of knowledge, skill and integrity of the personal finance profession. AFCPE® aims to empower people to achieve lasting financial well-being through financial counseling, coaching, and education.

Together, The Yellow Ribbon Network with AFCPE® are currently offering free financial counseling to anyone who has experienced a negative change in income and/or budget due to COVID-19. This partnership has come about due to the widespread economic impact that COVID-19 has had on individuals and families. While the government has worked to expand public benefits and has distributed stimulus checks, there is still a great deal of financial stress and uncertainty for many people. The goal of this partnership is to help individuals navigate their financial situation in the short and long term.

The certified financial counselors and coaches will help you to make a plan and will provide you with unbiased, trustworthy advice. These sessions are available virtually – and are free.

An AFCPE® certified professional will never sell you products. They can help you to address your spending and savings plans, overcome debt, work through ineffective money management behaviors, and/or create a specific plan during this time of uncertainty. Your financial counselor will work closely with you to help you through today’s challenges and to develop a strong financial foundation for the future.
