DENVER (AP) – The Christian ministry Focus on the Family says it is eliminating 49 more jobs, bringing its number of employees to 650.

The Colorado Springs-based organization founded by family therapist James Dobson employed a peak of 1,400 people in 2002.

The Denver Post reports Focus on the Family had a $105 million budget for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, but officials project it will receive donations of only $90 million to $95 million for the year.

Focus Vice President Gary Schneeberger said Friday that about one-third of the 49 jobs being cut were in management.

Focus airs a radio program with an estimated 2 million listeners and provides counseling and services.
