HOPE Coalition America (HCA) is the only Financial emergency preparedness and recovery service in the country. They are offering free disaster financial recovery services,  to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Financial issues affect far more people after a disaster than property damage or personal injury, and the impact is usually devastating. Through the HOPE Crisis Hotline and HCA on-site counseling centers, HOPE Inside coaches help survivors mitigate credit issues, develop emergency budget counseling, communicate with creditors, obtain SBA loans, prevent foreclosure, and prepare for the future.

To register for free disaster financial recovery services, call 1-888-388-4673.
