Debtmerica Helps Foster Teens Learn Real World Personal Finance Strategies

Santa Ana, CA (Vocus) June 17, 2010

On Saturday, April 24, Debtmerica, LLC teamed up with the Orangewood Childrens Foundation to help foster children learn to manage their personal finances with an all-day event set in a fictional Independent City.

Volunteers helped construct and operate Independent City, which simulated some of the day-to-day challenges faced by adults in modern American society. Orangewoods foster teens were able to learn valuable lessons about paying for housing, child care, groceries, and utilities at various stations in the exhibit, which was held in Irvine, Californias Pretend City Childrens Museum.

In a letter thanking Debtmerica volunteers after the event, Orangewood volunteer services program manager Kristi Piatkowski – who had previously lauded the assistance of Debtmerica volunteers for their assistance at another event last year – said that the youth learned about money management through their workshops, and added that the volunteers were wonderful in making sure that the day was educational and fun!

Piatkowski also noted that without Debtmericas support, both financial and in-kind, the event would not have happened.

Harry Langenberg, one of the Managing Partners of Debtmerica, spoke on behalf of his team, we are very proud to be part of Orangewoods mission. Debtmerica is a big proponent of giving back to the Community where it can, and Orangewoods programs enable our entire staff to get involved and contribute to a wonderful cause.

The Orangewood Childrens Foundations goal is to help eliminate the neglect and abuse of children in Orange County, California. The foundation works to accomplish this on four main fronts: Strengthening families to prevent abuse from occurring in the first place, protecting children from abusive homes from physical and emotional violence, emancipating teens from abusive families, and promoting enhanced public awareness of the challenges faced by children raised in such damaging environments. This last goal has been the area in which important partners like Debtmerica have been able to do the most good for the foundations kids.

Headquartered in Orange County, CA, Debtmerica focuses on negotiated debt settlement, a powerful debt relief option which helps clients get debt free and remain so.
