This structural reorganization brought on by the lagging economy amounts to a decrease in jobs by 21%, or 202 positions (KOAA):

The bad economy has spread to Colorado Springs-based ministry Focus on the Family, which depends on donations for 95-percent of its funding. Focus is cutting 202 positions, which works out to 21-percent of its present local work force of 950.

Of the eliminated positions, 53 were vacant. That still means that 149 people are losing jobs. The affected employees have already been notified. They are being given severance packages that include a financial payout based on years with the ministry, along with job placement assistance.

Many of the cuts are in the marketing, operations, finance and human resources departments.
Focus is eliminating four of its eight magazines and will turn more of its attention to the internet.

Focus also has hundreds of overseas jobs.
