Rebuilding and Empowering

The Nashville Financial Empowerment Center offers free one-on-one financial counseling to Davidson County residents.
A partnership of the Mayor’s Office and United Way of Greater Nashville, the Nashville Financial Empowerment Center (FEC) helps people move from a state of instability to a state of empowerment with new savings habits, higher credit scores and lower debt burdens. Since opening its doors in 2013, the Nashville FEC has helped 8,000 clients reduce their debt by $15.3 million and increase their savings by $3 million.

Becoming financially empowered means you can save for an emergency, purchase a car or a home, get a degree to improve your wages, or start a small business. Whether you are in chronic financial trouble, an unexpected crisis arises, or you just want to make sure you are on the right track, individualized counseling can move you toward greater financial stability.

Meeting with our financial counselors can help you:

  • Plan for your future
  • Establish or improve credit
  • Manage debt
  • Create a budget
  • Increase savings
  • Maximize cashflow

United Way of Greater Nashville is a partner of the Nashville Alliance for Financial Independence (NAFI). NAFI, a network of public, private and non-profit organizations and community members, works collaboratively to streamline processes and promote financial health for vulnerable individuals and families.
