We are available either by walk-in appointments to our office or by calling our office. We will provide information on the services we offer, as well as schedule follow up appointments for families who are interested,” Schenkel concluded.
Appointments are not required, but can be scheduled in advance by calling FINANCIALHOPE at 260-432-8200 or by e-mailing Julie St. Martin at jstmartin@financialhope.org.
