Field & Main’s Partnership with Habitat for Humanity
Field & Main is a bank with a purpose, and we are wholly committed to our Why – To Build Community. One of the many ways we help to build the Henderson community specifically is through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Henderson.
Habitat for Humanity of Henderson just finished construction on their 65th home in Henderson County and currently has another three homes under construction. Through its membership in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Field & Main has assisted this incredible organization in securing $623,375 in grant funds over the past 20 years. These grants helped Habitat for Humanity construct 26 homes for low- and moderate-income families.
“Habitat for Humanity of Henderson is so grateful for our long-term partnership with Field & Main Bank. The Bank has been our Federal Home Loan Bank supporting bank for over ten years. This partnership alone has helped Habitat of Henderson raise our capacity to build more homes in the Henderson community. Field & Main Bank states that it exists to extend civic and economic resources to those who need it. The bank has definitely put these words into action with our Habitat of Henderson. Together we have been able to provide many Henderson families houses and hope.” – Britney Smith, HFH of Henderson, Executive Director
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Field & Main Bank is proud to help those who hope to fulfill the American dream of homeownership for their family.
“We want to give the community the opportunity of the American dream: to own their own home.” David Sartore, Executive Vice President & CFO
Other Ways We Help:
In addition to partnering with Habitat for Humanity for grants, Field & Main Bank has also donated land to the organization for the construction of homes. Field & Main Bank has also provided building materials and tools. Hardworking employees volunteer during the construction of Habitat homes, and several employees have served on the board of directors for Habitat.
While homeownership is the goal of Habitat for Humanity, that is not always a possibility for everyone in need of housing. Beyond their relationship with Habitat for Humanity, Field & Main Bank has also secured an additional $2,200,000 for construction of 186 units of housing for low- and moderate-income individuals and those who have suffered or are suffering from substance abuse addictions.
Why We Help:
We are a community-driven organization and we are so appreciative of Habitat for Humanity and all those who volunteer to build homes for those that need it. It is an honor for Field & Main Bank to assist an organization that makes such a difference in the lives of many.
