Budget layoffs prompt AFCU site to help educators
AUSTIN, Texas (3/30/11)--With many of the schools within its membership affected by state budget-crisis layoffs, A+FCU, Austin, Texas, has launched a website to help members ease the burden of financial difficulties. The site, mydream-job.org, offers free financial educational resources, including guidance on stretching a budget during unemployment, one-on-one financial coaching, lending assistance and advice on how to become one’s own boss. “The new website is another way of ensuring those in need have a support system in place, said Kerry A. S. Parker, CEO of A+FCU. “It allows us to give back to the community that has been integral in making us who we are today.” A+FCU was created by 50 Austin Independent School District teachers in 1949. Parker will appear on FOX-7’s “Good Day Austin” on April 12 to discuss mydreamjob.org and a workshop series, “Surviving My Layoff,” which begins April 21. To visit the website, use the link.
