Get Out of Debt
Susan Keating, President & CEO, National Foundation for Credit Counseling
You may not necessarily know Keating, but chances are, you know the organization she runs -- the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. The largest and longest serving nonprofit credit counseling organization, credit counseling agencies that are members of the NFCC served nearly 4 million Americans in 2009. That's up from 2.5 million Americans in 2007, prior to the stock market tumbling and the recession settling in.
