Improve your
financial future

Build your credit and opportunities

Many people don’t know if they have good credit or not, until they make a large purchase or financial outlay. Having poor credit can have a negative impact on your future. Whether it’s allowing you to qualify for subsidized housing, take out a loan for a car or home, start a business, or more, our trained credit coaches can help you: 

  • Find ways to establish and build credit 
  • Decrease debt  
  • Repair or improve your credit score   
  • Pull and understand credit reports 
  • Assist with letters of dispute

To have everything and then become homeless, to becoming a homeowner, is a dream come true. I have been through so much and I have worked very hard to get to where I am. All I needed was a little help and organizations that care and want to help me, and they did. I am beyond thankful and truly blessed.

Frequently asked questions

One of the first things our coaches will do is teach you how to request a credit report. They’ll then help you see what the score is and what may be affecting it. Depending on the situation, they’ll work with you to establish, repair, and/or build your score.

Whatever door you come into Community Action Marin through, if you have other basic needs, like rental or water bill assistance, we can help with that as well.
