The Rapid City United Way is more than half way to reaching its goal of $1.9 million for local community agencies this year.
Consumer Credit Counseling Service of the Black Hills is one of many agencies the United Way helps fund. The non–profit agency has been serving Western South Dakota for about 37 years.
The agency provides debt management and housing services along with scholarships for educational programs; things that wouldn’t be possible without assistance from the United Way.
“Because of the generosity of the people who support the United Way we do get an appropriation from all of United Way agencies in the Black Hills area,” said Terry Mills of Consumer Credit Counseling Services. “We actually use that money to provide scholarships to educational classes, home buying classes and counseling classes.”
Consumer Credit Counseling Services received nearly $28,000 last year.
