We could not achieve what we do without the tireless efforts of the dedicated people on our team. In addition to providing business lending and counseling, our staff “walks the talk” and actively advocates on behalf of low wealth communities and individuals. Our talented team is comprised of lending professionals as well as administrative personnel, all of whom have extensive experience in their area of responsibility.

Our leadership team has years of diverse experience in finance, community development and affordable housing, loan administration for minorities, women, nonprofits and small business and project management. Each member brings a unique perspective and high level of commitment to the table, ensuring that Community First Fund operates as an agile, forward-thinking organization.
