Last week, Jubilee Housing, along with Platform of Hope partners Life Asset, Capital Area Asset Builders, and Jubilee Jobs, were excited to welcome staff from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to listen to participants of the Platform of Hope (PoH) credit building program talk about barriers they have faced in accessing credit.
“For some people hearing other experiences around credit is important so that they understand that they are not alone,” said Aurora Milas, a current participant of Platform of Hope and a Jubilee Housing resident.
The CFPB provides tools and information for consumers. They came to Jubilee to hear firsthand accounts from PoH participants, which will help inform ways they can increase access to safe and affordable financial products on a national scale.
