September 17, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Award-winning morning show The Balancing Act® will feature a “Be the Change” segment on how corporate America is empowering people to build better lives on Friday, September 18 and Friday, September 25 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime®. 

“Providing quality, affordable financial tools and know-how for those in need” is the objective behind MetLife Foundation’s on-going efforts in communities across the world.  Working in collaboration  with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation or LISC, the two have partnered to help struggling men and women pursue their goals, such as finding a better job, building credit and sticking to a budget. LISC’s Financial Opportunity Centers, funded in part by MetLife Foundation, help working individuals, especially working mothers nationwide. Join MetLife Foundation’s April Hawkins, and LISC’s Sueng Kim as they sit down with Jennifer Castañón, a woman who is living proof that companies in partnership with their nonprofit partners are helping those less fortunate…those who simply need the tools and management necessary to find greater success and fulfillment. TV Host Julie Moran leads the charge in this engaging “Be the Change” segment. For additional resources, please go to
