Their team of certified counselors works with clients to improve credit, reduce debt, manage student debt, avoid eviction or foreclosure, build emergency savings, prepare for homeownership, or whatever their situation requires. In 2017 Clarifi provided one-on-one financial counseling to more than 11,000 people, delivered 338 educational workshops, and helped clients enrolled in their Debt Management Program pay off more than $4.7 million in debt.
The Renewal Awards seek to illuminate grassroots solutions to challenges faced by communities around the country in an unsettling economic era.
Ultimately, five organizations will each receive a $20,000 grant from Allstate and five runners up will each receive a $10,000 grant from Allstate.
The Renewal Awards are related to The Renewal Project, a social-first website and newsroom spotlighting people and organizations advancing social good and contributing to civic innovation across the country.
Last year’s Renewal Awards were presented in March 2017 after a yearlong search for America’s most promising social innovators. The six winning organizations, chosen from a pool of more than 460 nominees, were: New Alternatives for LGBTQ Homeless Youth (New York, NY), Free Minds Book Club & Writing Workshop (Washington, DC), Kounkuey Design Initiative (Los Angeles, CA), LostBoyz, Inc. (Chicago, IL), and Hour Children (Long Island City, NY), also the “Allstate Youth Empowerment” winner.
