We are happy to announce that Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County has been awarded a $20,000 Bank of America Charitable Foundation in recognition of the work we’ve delivered to communities across Ventura County. The grant will support new home building in the Santa Paula community.
Helping working families find and keep suitable homes is central to stimulating our national economic recovery. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Bank of America to extend vital community services to those who need them most. The grant is part of a $22 million investment by Bank of America to build and rehab affordable housing, offer foreclosure prevention services and homeowner counseling, and provide other services intended to invigorate and rejuvenate neighborhoods. Nationally the grants support more than 650 nonprofits in 34 states.
“In response to the many challenges facing our communities, we are focusing our philanthropic support on areas vital to advancing local economies,” said, Bank of America Market President, David Prichard. “The bank’s $47,500.00 investment in local nonprofits that help individuals and families regain financial stability through housing and other community development initiatives is one way we’re working to stabilize and advance in the Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.”
As Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County looks to provide sustainable housing solutions for families in need, Bank of America’s investment in our organization will enable us to continue performing our vital work.
