(Credit Review)
“How to Get a Credit Report”
Clients may go directly to any of the 3 credit
agencies to purchase a credit report. The FACT
Act of 2003 permits consumers to obtain free
copies of their credit reports (credit scores are not
included but may be purchased) from each of the
3 main credit bureaus: Experian, Equifax &
TransUnion, every 12 months. In order to do so,
they should go to the website developed by the
FTC (Federal Trade Commission) in conjunction
with the 3 bureaus. That website is
www.annualcreditreport.com. If clients do not
have access to the Internet at home, and do not
wish to use the library for privacy reasons or
because they do not hold a library card, then the
BC Housing Group can supply them with a paper
form that can be mailed to Annual Credit Report.
Homeless clients, or clients who have not lived at
the same address for the last 2 years, will almost
always need to order the report through the mail.
(The BC Housing Group phone is (215) 5983566.)

necessary arrangements through the NRS and
Greyhound. Since its inception in 1984, Greyhound
Lines' Home Free program has helped return
thousands of runaways to their families.
