We believe in people. The snacking, screaming, overthinking, real deal kind of people. Because real people make communities. And communities fuse us together and propel us forward.
But across the country, people are struggling to just get by financially, and our communities are vulnerable to risky financial behaviors and predatory lending practices that take advantage of a lack of financial education among American consumers.
Having witnessed the financial struggles first hand of so many Americans and their families, the credit union industry is taking a stand for change. CU Solutions Group, on behalf of America's Credit Unions, created Just Getting By, focusing on the stories of real people and the real challenges they endure. By sharing their stories – or by sharing your own – you help raise awareness about these issues. Beginning a conversation about financial hardship allows us to remove the stigma for those that are just getting by and empower them to seek the financial resources they desperately need.
