A+ Federal Credit Union’s Eric Kase Shares How Vital It Is To Educate Our Community About Affordable Housing

December 10, 2021

Q: WHAT MOTIVATES A+ CREDIT UNION TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE HOUSE THAT CREDIT UNIONS BUILT?

A: Homeownership is a dream for almost everyone, and to be a part of making that dream a reality is such a rewarding feeling. Plus, having the opportunity to collaborate with other Austin-based credit unions shows our cooperative spirit and that’s just one more way credit unions are different!

Q: How has the affordable housing crisis impacted the work that you do?

A: More than ever, it’s vital that we educate and inform our communities on what it takes to become a homeowner, and we work diligently to find ways to make that dream a reality.

Q: WHAT TYPE OF CONNECTIONS HAVE YOU MADE DURING THIS PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OTHER CREDIT UNIONS?

A: I’ve been able to keep my connections strong with other CU leaders and make new connections with the great folks affiliated with Austin Habitat for Humanity!

Q: Which of THE SEVEN credit union COOPERATIVE PRINCIPLES ARE shared THROUGH this partnership?

A: We definitely show “cooperation among cooperatives”, and also “concern for community”, plus, “diversity, equity, and inclusion”.  To the new homeowner, I believe their partnership through this build provides many examples of “education, training, and information” about what a credit union is.

Q: Do you have a message for our readers?

A: Working with or contributing to Austin Habitat for Humanity builds stronger communities that will be filled with families that appreciate what they’ve been able to achieve. If you want to be a part of something that is meaningful, that makes a difference, then I hope you will consider supporting this initiative.

Thank you to our Credit Union Partners that help us build affordable housing!
