Committed to serving low-income urban and rural residents, the community-development corporation offers holistic social and human-services programs in addition to housing and economic-development assistance. Hurt by the economic downturn and government cutbacks, the agency is using this 36-month bridge loan from the Community Relief Fund – which offered program-related investments to high-performance human-service organizations that were providing food, shelter and other emergency services during the economic crisis – to help cover its current operating expenses.
