Budget shortfall forces credit counseling non-profit to shut down

A Hawaii organization that’s helped thousands of people save money is shutting down.

Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Hawaii will close at the end of June.

Executive director Wendy Burkholder told us the closure is due to a budget shortfall.

The organization has a very low fee structure for clients. They were previously able to stay afloat with multiple sources of income and support from other organizations.

Each year, eight employees help about 3,500 families and individuals through the non-profit organization.

They currently have locations on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island.
