MIAMI – Two south Florida credit unions, City County CU and Power Financial CU, and several banks, are teaming with United Ways of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach to provide a lifeline to the underserved.

The United Ways are partnering with a number of social welfare organizations to teach low-income families about how to safely use banks and credit unions. The idea is that the nonprofits' counselors will eventually take their low-income clients to banks or credit unions and introduce them to staff who can help watch over their accounts.

The three United Ways' banking partners include Bank of America, BB&T, Chase, Citibank, Great Florida Bank, Iberia Bank, PNC Bank, SunTrust, Wells Fargo and Community Bank of Broward.
