June 27, 2011 - American Financial Solutions Wins Washington State Award

Yakima, WA., June 22, 2011. – American Financial Solutions (AFS) was selected by the Washington State Asset Building Coalition at their statewide conference in Yakima last week to receive their “Amazing Impact Award” for AFS’ contributions to Asset Building initiatives in Washington.  The Washington Asset Building Coalition coordinates with similar Asset Building groups at the local level to provide financial education, access to mainstream banking and credit counseling for individuals through local events and community organizations.
