About Canton

Our mission is to provide guidance to small businesses.

  • This chapter counsels clients from Stark, Carroll, Holmes, Tuscarawas, and Harrison Counties.
  • We serve both for-profit and non-profit businesses.
  • SCORE can help existing businesses succeed and grow, and can assist in startups.

No-Cost Counseling

Our counselors provide face-to-face sessions that are client-confidential and free of charge.

All SCORE volunteers are guided by a Code of Ethics agreement.

Most counseling sessions are held at Kent State University at Stark's University Center, but other arrangements can be made.
