The Network is completely free to use and pairs individuals in need of financial support with accredited financial counselors who provide unbiased and trustworthy advice. YRN’s counselors and members can privately and securely review finances, create budgets, establish goals, create action plans and help protect credit scores. Network members can also utilize YRN’s tools and resources to sustain financial success.
“Millions of Americans are facing financial uncertainty because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Yellow Ribbon Network is in a unique position to provide assistance through its single-source platform,” says Christopher Fitzpatrick, deputy director of Yellow Ribbon Network. “We couldn’t be prouder to help hardworking Americans navigate this unprecedented time, while continuing to serve veterans and active military both now and into the future.”
