Westchester SCORE expands services


A popular small-business counseling group now makes house calls.

The Westchester chapter of the SCORE is making 16 of its 50 counselors available to advise entrepreneurs at their own offices. Until now, SCORE services were available by attending the group’s workshops and counseling sessions at the New York state Labor Department offices in White Plains.

“Our philosophy here is we want to keep it simple,� said Charles Auerbach, a chapter spokesman who’s coordinating the visiting counselors program.

Sometimes what a client sees as a problem is actually a symptom of something else that the client doesn’t recognize, Auerbach said. A visit to the client’s office may offer clues that a counselor can spot.

SCORE has held about 2,500 counseling sessions with start-up businesspeople. It has helped growing businesses raise more than $11 million locally in SBA-guaranteed loans.

To get help from SCORE, call 914-948-3907, send e-mail to scoreinfo@scorewestchester.com, or click here to access the organization’s Web site.
