learn new skills to help you take control of your personal finances

We have been located in Medford, Oregon for more than 40 years. We provide confidential credit counseling, personalized debt management plans, comprehensive credit reports and scores, pre-filing bankruptcy counseling and pre-discharge bankruptcy education, individualized housing counseling and extensive community financial education programs.

Consumer Credit Counseling is a fully licensed (California and Oregon) non-profit 501(c)(3) United Way Agency. We are also a member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. We are fully certified by the Council on Accreditation, which guarantees the professional counseling and education we provide meets rigorous quality standards.

All of our knowledgeable counselors are fully certified by the National Foundation for Consumer Credit. In addition, our housing counselors are fully certified by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide reverse mortgage counseling.

Bill Ihle

Executive Director & CEO

Bill Ihle joined us in July 2017 and has lived in the Rogue Valley since 1997. Bill brings a broad and deep understanding of the community, its needs, its people, and how our organization can lead in the vital areas of financial literacy and financial health. Bill comes with a deep commitment to improving the financial health of the area, with the knowledge that financial health is directly tied to many social determinants of health. After all, if you don’t have your financial health, how can you have a safe home for your family, or afford a car? Without that foundation in place, how can you get a job or keep your family fed? Previously, Bill worked in the non-profit world, and earlier he led several very high profile global companies, serving as Executive Vice President of Communications, Marketing and Community Engagement for Harry & David Holdings and Yamanouchi Consumer, Inc. from Tokyo.
