LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA, October 13, 2022 — Home Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) awarded $17,000 to The Hub: Lafayette Urban Ministries (The Hub). The Hub is a community-based organization (CBO) that provides access to essential resources and support to people recovering from addiction and mental illness.
Awarded annually through FHLB Dallas’ member institutions, Partnership Grant Program (PGP) funds help promote and strengthen relationships between CBOs and FHLB Dallas members. FHLB Dallas matches member contributions of $500 to $4,000 at a 3:1 ratio.
“Home Bank is committed to serving the needs of our communities, and we are pleased to join with FHLB Dallas to support The Hub and the incredible work they do across Lafayette,” said Kelvin Luster, community development director at Home Bank.
The Hub plans to use its PGP award to continue its weekly program ministries which provides meals and opportunities to participate in classes such as financial literacy, resume building, computer skills and more.
The Hub is one of seven local nonprofit organizations that Home Bank is supporting with PGP funding this year. Together, Home Bank and FHLB Dallas contributed more than $67,000 to seven CBOs across Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
“Home Bank pours its resources into communities,” said Greg Hettrick, first vice president and director of Community Investment at FHLB Dallas. “Addiction and mental illness afflict so many people, it is an honor to partner with a financial institution that shows this level of commitment to caring for their constituents.”
