For 25 years, HOPE has helped marginalized residents across the Deep South climb the economic ladder by advancing financial inclusion, building assets, and by changing systems that disenfranchise families. HOPE is a family of organizations comprised of:
• a cooperative financial institution predominantly owned by people of color and women that drives capital into banking desert by converting every $1 of equity into $8 of insured deposits for community development financing, and that brings thousands of people from the economy’s edge into the financial mainstream (Hope Credit Union),
• a nonprofit intermediary that aggregates and braids public and private resources to fuel innovative, impactful solutions that foster jobs, education, access to healthy food, healthcare and affordable housing and other mobility drivers in high poverty places (Hope Enterprise Corporation), and
• an advocacy arm that shapes policies and practices to narrow opportunity chasms forged by decades of underinvestment – using data and analysis mined from our member-owners, communities, and internal subject matter experts; and that mobilizes Deep South residents and stakeholders around shared priorities (Hope Policy Institute). Together, these entities mitigate the extent to which factors such as race, gender, ethnicity, birthplace, and wealth obstruct the trajectory of one’s life. For over a quarter century, HOPE has positively impacted the lives of more than one million people in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, channeling more than $2.5 billion in financing into a range of community shaping, life-changing activities.

These include manual underwriting, flexible rates and terms, through the extensive use of credit enhancement programs, and leveraging financing from a range of bank, public and philanthropic resources. Further, HOPE often complements its financing with partnerships and strategies that provide technical assistance that strengthens the capacity of borrowers. Working in tandem with the Commercial Lending department, the Community & Economic Development team amplifies HOPE’s impact by identifying and structuring financing opportunities in key areas/sectors that bolsters economic mobility in vulnerable communities, such as affordable housing, healthcare, education, healthy food, and community facilities. The CED team manages HOPE’s New Markets Tax Credit program, Charter School Facilities Fund, Mid South Healthy Food Initiative, Low-income Housing Tax Credit program, Opportunity Zone Funds, and other high-impact activities. The CED team also leads HOPE’s Small Towns Partnership, collaborating with local leaders, residents and other key stakeholders to plan and implement strategies that increase economic mobility in economically distressed towns and neighborhoods.
Primary and Essential Functions
• Provide leadership, coaching, and management to senior leaders responsible for HOPE’s Commercial Lending and Community & Economic Development activities.
• Oversee the operational and portfolio performance of the Commercial Lending and Community & Economic Development areas, and make recommendations for overall effectiveness and continuous improvement.
