Every month the financial gurus at Axiom Bank bring their expertise to the residents of The Transition House. The men in our residential program are veterans getting clean and sober and back on their feet. Many have lost everything, been to jail, lived on the street. They face unique financial challenges, and Axiom employees help them find solutions.
From helping residents set up checking accounts to hashing out a monthly budget to taking steps to improve their credit scores, Axiom’s workshops are invaluable. A better understanding of money matters often makes a huge difference in the lives of our residents.
The Central Florida bank, formerly named UTB, focuses on providing empowering financial services to underbanked communities. The bank’s retail branch footprint has evolved into a network of 20 branches, with 19 locations inside Walmart Supercenters throughout the state. Axiom has adopted online and mobile banking technology to more effectively help customers access their finances in the 21st century.
Axiom Bank also specializes in commercial loans for both real estate and business purposes, as well as treasury management and other merchant services. In addition to those services, Axiom Bank sponsors prepaid debit card programs offered by third‐party program managers.
The bank has become a trusted partner and ally to The Transition House. And this week, Axiom will be bringing more than just advice to the men who live in our communal living facility at our administrative headquarters in St. Cloud.
They’re also bringing all the food, supplies, and manpower to help our residents enjoy this holiday and truly count their blessings.
Axiom supports local charities throughout Central Florida, from other outreach agencies like ours to its recent $100,000 donation to the Emory Neuromodulation and Technology Innovation Center in Atlanta to help develop new treatments for brain diseases and conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson’s, depression, and more. Axiom Bank made the gift as part of its continued commitment to supporting its community and addressing the needs of people, even beyond its home state. “Axiom Bank is very proud to give back to the communities we serve,” said Angelo Palombi, CEO.
Bank employees themselves help support the company’s philanthropy through its Dress‐Down Friday program, which encourages employees to pay $5 to wear jeans the last day of the week.
“Our charitable contributions are part of our effort to support and improve the communities we serve,” said Ronald Strand‐Sorrell, Senior Vice President and Chief Risk Officer, who oversees Axiom Bank’s community outreach programs.
