A primer on how to ease financial stress
Sherwood families balance more today than ever before as they try to stay healthy, work from home, homeschool and find ways to socialize safely.
If those challenges weren't enough, a recent poll by National Public Radio, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found 61 percent of families across the country today with children face serious financial challenges.As the manager of OnPoint Community Credit Union's new Sherwood Branch, I see firsthand the financial impact of this year on our community. I grew up in the area and attended school in Tigard and Tualatin, where my dad taught for 35 years including coaching baseball and basketball for many of those years, so looking after this community's financial health is personal for me.
Joshua Petersen, manager of OnPoint's new Sherwood branch, graduated from Tualatin High School.
