“Our Awareness Partner Program was launched to establish and enhance industry relationships, create awareness for AACF services, and help us identify aftermarket individuals and families in need,” said Joel Ayres, executive director. “Awareness Partners receive the resources needed to connect with company employees during tough times, and support them through the steps to apply for help.”

According to industry research, there are more than four million aftermarket industry employees. National research shows about 70% of adult Americans have no savings for emergencies or private long-term disability insurance.
