Connecting Us to People In Milwaukee County Who Need Student Loan Default Support

The impact of student loan default on a borrower’s life is serious. Default impacts a borrower’s credit score, limits their access to federal student aid and carries financial burdens, such as collection costs, wage garnishment and tax refund offsets. Overall, default further expands existing inequities and disparities around education achievement, housing, employment and economic security.

Our company mission is to eliminate barriers and equity gaps that prevent many people from achieving their education and career goals. Based on our expertise in default resolution counseling and financial wellness, the Wisconsin Department of Administration awarded us with an Equitable Recovery Grant.

Part of a nearly $650 million investment allocated by Governor Evers for community building and recovery efforts statewide, the Equitable Recovery Program was first announced in April 2021. It provides over $81 million to fund health, early childhood, education services or programming, and organizations providing economic support, housing, and environmental justice services.

Our expertise is being provided through our Student Loan Start OverTM program to help people get a new start after defaulting on their federal student loans.
