BALTIMORE — For its ongoing work in helping to build the communities it serves, HOPE Community Credit Union is one of the recipients of a $500,000 award from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The $44 million credit union will share the monetary award with its close partner, Enterprise Corporation of the Delta, a community development financial institution that provides financial products and services in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and the Greater Memphis area of Tennessee. Together, the two have developed a network of banks, corporations, nonprofits and faith-based organizations to invest in low-income neighborhoods, while serving families directly. By joining forces, these two economic engines have generated more than $300 million in financing to help families and communities thrive.

"These organizations deserve our recognition and accolades for putting families on solid ground and giving them the tools to build bright futures," said Douglas Nelson, president of the Casey Foundation. "No matter where the honorees reach families, they have the ingredients to help them succeed: financial and parenting education, health care solutions, and economic, social and career-building opportunities."
