That’s why we are supporting WD&E opportunities that help the unemployed & underserved obtain the training and education that translate into post-secondary completion and employment.
Community Development (Housing): Housing remains a pressing issue in communities across the country. In response we fund programs focused on foreclosure counseling and mitigation, real estate owned disposition and affordable housing. In conjunction we support financial education and coaching.
