Britepaths partners with United Community in the Alexandria area, and Western Fairfax Christian MinistriesOx Hill Baptist Church and Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services in Western Fairfax, to bring free in-person Financial Counseling Sessions to low- to moderate-income adults. We anticipate resuming these services at some point in 2021.

Volunteer Financial Planners help adult individuals tackle a pressing financial problem. The volunteers will provide a one-time, 45-minute session to help clients examine their immediate financial situation and help them create a course of action to address concerns.

Britepaths' Financial Counseling Clinics are made possible through a grant from the Foundation for Financial Planning.
