In 1991, the Skrupa family created an independent, non-profit organization focused on consumer education. After appointing an independent board of directors, Credit Advisors Foundation was born.
While educating consumers on personal financial issues, we encountered those who struggled to participate in traditional debt management programs. At this time, we started offering a modified debt management option, with a heavy educational component. We know that financial knowledge and responsibility are necessary to stay out of debt.
In 2004, we were accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and became a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certified provider of housing counseling. The following year, 2005, the Executive Office of the US Trustee (EOUST) approved our program for pre-bankruptcy consumer education.
Today we continue to move forward in our mission to eradicate the causes and consequences of ineffective consumer debt management through education, training, and programs. We continue to look for new ways to educate the public and show consumers how they can become, and remain, debt free.
