The Nashville Financial Empowerment Center offers free 1-on-1 financial counseling to Davidson County residents.

Operated in partnership with the City of Nashville and the Mayor's Office, the Nashville Financial Empowerment Center helps clients reduce debt and build assets through free 1-on-1 financial counseling.
