Background

CommunityWorks is a nonprofit financial organization established in 2008 to support affordable housing and community development as a critical vehicle for fostering stable families and healthy communities. Since that time, CommunityWorks has transformed into a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that is committed to building a brighter future for underserved families and communities through financial education, lending, and investing.

Successfully moving up the economic ladder depends on financial stability at every step. CommunityWorks coordinates and aligns opportunities for Greenville’s underserved families by providing small business and housing loans, financial literacy training, and an array of financial products aimed at building wealth.
