Meet Billie Jo
The company she worked for offered her additional hours, however public transportation was her only option at that time, and the bus schedule would not accommodate the available work schedule. One of her financial goals was to buy a car and eliminate this barrier. Bank On Wayne Program Manager, Lee Hulse provided one-on-one coaching to help Billie Jo use the information she had learned to create a plan to achieve her goals. Following the plan, saving her money, Billie Jo was able to successfully purchase a car and take on the additional hours at work. She felt empowered. The plan worked!
Billie Jo came to Bank On Wayne (BOW) through the Housing Authority of Goldsboro’s ROSS (Resident Opportunity for Self-Sufficiency) program. She is a single mom currently living in public housing, but Billie Jo is highly motivated to transition to an independent lifestyle. At the time she started BOW, Billie Jo was employed part-time, but after completing the training on budgeting she began to recognize that she was going to need full-time employment in order to come up with a balanced budget.
