After many years in the work force, Shirley Winchester lost her job in June.
"I was out of work and I needed someone to help in finding jobs," said Shirley.
She wasn't prepared for what a modern world would greet her with when applying for employment.
"Because everything is on the computer now and the computer classes help a lot," said Shirley.
She adapted thanks to a free community program.
"Classes were from 9 to 12 each day," said Shirley.
"They were very helpful in telling you what you needed to do for the workforce, how to fill out your resumes and offered computer classes," said Shirley.
The classes are provided by Jacob's Ladder, a nonprofit organization. And the technology is provided by Fifth Third Bank.
"We understand there is a technology division in low income households," said Jada Grandy from Fifth Third Bank.
Fifth Third Bank is also bringing this technology to you. The bank's EBus is in Charlotte this week helping struggling families connect with the resources they need most.
"Individuals can have access to free credit reports, they can also have access to budgeting tools, and learn how to manage their finances," said Brandy.
Visitors to the 40 foot vehicle can also apply for work and access different healthcare resources.
"Financial wellness and physical wellness go hand in hand," said Brandy.
"Many times people have financial problems which end up impacting their physical health."
There are people who end up with financial problems because of medical bills, and people whose physical problems come from the stress of their finances.
"Diabetes, hypertension, obesity, headaches and stomach problems all caused by stress. There are quite a few chronic illnesses are associated with stress," added Susan Goodman with CW Williams Community Health.
