At LendStreet our mission is simple – help people get out of debt, rebuild their credit, and get a fresh start.
All of us have experienced financial difficulty at some time or another, either personally, or through a family member, friend, neighbor, or co-worker. It is important to recognize that you or they are not alone – financial distress is a major concern in our society.
The truth is financial distress is very common and has a significant impact on mental and physical health, work performance, and family interactions.
