2020 was the year of reckoning — a global health and economic pandemic, civic unrest, a racial & social justice awakening, and leadership changes in the White House, our city halls, and even our organization.
This is why we are Moving Forward, Equitably. We recognize, as one of the few place-based CDFIs in central California serving hundreds of businesses, we must be judicious about our impact by serving traditional underinvested communities with accessible capital and coaching services. With the support of our board, investors, and community partners, the staff remains committed to bridging the financial justice gap in our regional economy.
