If you know about any non profit or low cost credit counseling services, I'd let him know about that.

I wouldn't intrude on his financial privacy since he hasn't asked you to.

Financial counseling ---- better late than never.

Decisions for someone in such dire straights probably aren't something you should get involved with --- I would guess.

<<7) I bought my friend a pair of dress pants 2 months ago.
8) When I do visit him I buy dinner for him and his son.

These sound like the actions of a good friend. But I wouldn't try to get involved in his problems or try to solve them for him.
