We’re proud to introduce our May Partner of the Month, Pacific Western Bank! Through their generosity and support of several projects, Pacific Western has made a huge impact on the people we serve. We’re excited to honor their commitment to increasing affordable housing in our community.

Pacific Western supports CASA’s Affordable Housing Accelerator (AHA) Fund. Real estate in our community moves quickly, and CASA needs to be able to act fast when new land becomes available. Having funds reserved for real estate purposes in the AHA fund enables us to be competitive with for-profit developers.

Additionally, last year Pacific Western committed to a Title Sponsorship for our annual Fall Fundraiser. Sponsorships of CASA’s Fall Fundraiser support the Housing Solution Fund, which keeps our tenants stable in their homes and helps bridge the gap between what our residents can afford to pay and what it actually costs to maintain their stable housing.

CASA’s Senior Director of Mission Advancement, Missy Hatley, says, “Pacific Western Bank has opened their hearts to our organization. Not only have they worked to support our current tenants, but they’ve supported our efforts to build more affordable housing in our community. We’re so pleased to have them as a partner!”

“Pacific Western Bank is proud to support CASA and their efforts to develop and maintain quality affordable housing across our community,” said Evan Sitton, Senior Vice President of CRA & Community Development for Pacific Western Bank. “This work is essential to improving the overall health and safety of our neighbors in need of a stable home…something we believe everyone deserves.”

Thank you, Pacific Western, for your generous support of CASA!
