Consumer Credit Counseling Service was established in 1972 by the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and local labor organizations in response to a need for consumer-based credit counseling. We are now a program of Aurora Family Service, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families for over a century.

In addition, CCCS was the first credit counseling service in the area to be a member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), a non-profit network of agencies dedicated to providing assistance to people dealing with stressful financial situations.

CCCS is also accredited by the Council on Accreditation which signifies the highest standards in the credit counseling field. Our counselors are certified and receive continuing training required to remain experts in our field.

CCCS is a non-profit organization, licensed by the State of Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. We also are a member of the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau.
