Cabrillo provides free counseling on money matters

Help available for home buying

Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation’s Homebuyer and Financial Services offers free financial counseling to Ventura County residents.

“Clients benefit by receiving free guidance on financial and housing goals and end up with better control of spending and savings. They will receive a personalized action plan so that they may achieve their goals quicker. They also receive additional resources suitable to their situation,” said Heidi Reyes, homebuyer and financial services counselor.

Counseling is provided during private, one-on-one sessions with a housing counselor and include a free credit report.

Cabrillo counselors work with clients to help them understand the importance of a positive credit report and to develop a spending and savings plan to establish, repair or maintain good credit to meet their personal goals.
