A partnership of the Mayor’s Office and United Way of Greater Nashville, the Nashville Financial Empowerment Center (FEC) helps people move from a state of instability to a state of empowerment with new savings habits, higher credit scores and lower debt burdens. Since opening its doors in 2013, the Nashville FEC has helped 9,457 clients reduce their debt by $23+ million and increase their savings by $3+ million.
