VICKSBURG, MISSISSIPPI, October 29, 2021 – Home Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) have partnered to award $10,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds to Mountain of Faith Ministries, a nonprofit based in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
“This is the second time in the past three years that Home Bank and FHLB Dallas have supported us with PGP funds, and it is greatly appreciated,” said Betty James, executive director of Mountain of Faith Ministries, which operates a 90-day emergency shelter and a 24-month restoration shelter for homeless women and children. The organization also provides alcohol and drug abuse treatment.
The funds will be used for administration and operational costs to keep the doors of the shelter open, she said.
The funding was celebrated during a ceremonial check presentation this week.
“We are pleased to support Mountain of Faith Ministries as it serves some of the most vulnerable people in the Vicksburg community,” said Home Bank Senior Vice President and Community Development Director Kelvin Luster. “This PGP grant will provide them the resources they need to continue their mission, and we are honored to be a part of it.”
For 2021, FHLB Dallas awarded $400,000 in PGP grants, and its members provided an additional $200,250 for an impact of more than $600,000 in its five-state District of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas.
“Home Bank has been an active participant in the PGP, and we are partnering with them on a number of grants this year,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “Grassroots involvement like that of Home Bank shows a bank really cares about the communities it serves.”
