ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- InCharge Debt Solutions will provide financial literacy support for the Department of Defense's "Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP)" when thousands of National Guard and Reserve members gather at the Rosen Centre Hotel, 9700 International Drive, Orlando, Florida from November 17-18, 2012.  These mandatory events provide 30-, 60- and 90-day transition programs designed to connect National Guard and Reserve members with information on health care, education and training opportunities, financial, and legal benefits.

InCharge provides free credit counseling, foreclosure assistance, home buyer education, and civilian transition guidebooks to servicemembers attending "Yellow Ribbon" events like this one, as well as at future Orlando programs being planned for 2013.  YRRP also hosts events in Miami and Tampa and InCharge will participate in events throughout the state of Florida as they occur.

"The 'Yellow Ribbon' program is such a vital service, and it is a perfect fit for our efforts to assist military members and their families with the financial challenges they face in and around a pre- and post-deployment," said Shawn Walsh, InCharge's Outreach Programs Director.  "InCharge offers free financial counseling and other tools and programs that these American heroes need in order to keep their homes and their finances sound."

Known officially as the Yellow Ribbon Integration Program, it is a congressionally mandated program that was established in 2008 under the National Defense Authorization Act (Section 582 of Public Law 110) which called for information events and activities for National Guard and Reserve service members and their families, to facilitate access to services supporting their health and well-being throughout the deployment cycle.
