LIVE OAK, Texas (9/20/13)--Randolph-Brooks FCU (RFCU), based in Live Oak, Texas, was recently awarded the 2013 Access Award from the Austin Mayor's Committee for People with Disabilities for its Domain mall branch in Austin.
The award is annually given to businesses and organizations that not only meet the accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, but go above and beyond when providing goods and services to people with disabilities.
"At RBFCU, our mission is to improve our members' economic well-being and overall quality of life. That includes making our financial institution accessible to members, so they can use our resources and facilities to save time, save money and earn money," said Mark Matthews, assistant vice president of business development and community relations in Austin for the $5.5 billion asset credit union.
The RBFCU branch is considered to have superior accessibility, because of key features such as accessible parking spaces, ramps, restrooms and doors. The Domain branch also offers lower teller stations, sizeable office spaces and lower check writing stations to be completely wheelchair-accessible.
