With no partner to depend on, she knew she would have to go back to school and start working to provide for her two children.</p> <p>To accomplish her goals, she had to find reliable childcare, which she could not afford. After researching options throughout Phoenix, Melissa finally found the level of care she needed from a local organization called Child Crisis Arizona. “Without Child Crisis, I wouldn't have had the mental capacity to pull through,” says Melissa. “I knew that when I dropped my kids off in the morning, they were in a safe place.”</p> <p>Child Crisis Arizona helped Melissa feel supported in caring for her children. If she didn't have the time to take her kids out to the park in the afternoon, she knew they were getting plenty of exercise at school. If she was going through a difficult time and couldn't be playful with them, she knew they were still having joyful memories with friends and teachers.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><img alt="ChildCrisisAZ-Web_FullWidth1" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="d0691d1b-5651-439a-913e-a02af1f96b98" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_FullWidth1.png" style="padding:15px 0" class="align-center" /></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h3 class="accent-bar-sm">Strengthening Families Through Crisis Prevention</h3> <div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="957d62fe-90a9-4dbe-92b3-d2f63bff2a48" style="float:left;display:block;width:479px;" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="957d62fe-90a9-4dbe-92b3-d2f63bff2a48" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10561" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial1.png?itok=v6zE_koX" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial1.png?itok=Xc00OQ2-" alt="ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial1" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial1.png?itok=v6zE_koX" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> <div class="testimonial__content--quote"> <span>"</span>Child Crisis Arizona gave me the perseverance I needed to keep going, and continue to do what I needed to do to get to the place where I am now.

Since 1977, Child Crisis Arizona has served more than 60,000 children and families.</p> <p>“We take a stand and advocate for the children in the welfare system, because children don’t always have a voice,” says Torrie Taj, CEO of Child Crisis Arizona.</p> <p>During the COVID pandemic, Child Crisis Arizona has continued serving vulnerable children and families with weekly meal distribution nights for foster care and early education families. Low income families are able to pick up breakfast and lunch for their children daily, along with educational activities to do at home. Family education courses were transitioned online as well as Agency Meet and Greets for families interested in becoming licensed foster parents.</p> <p>“These families need us more than ever right now, we’ve provided more than 30,000 meals during the pandemic,” Taj says. “We have families that come and have tears in their eyes because they are so grateful that we deliver food every day for their children. We’re also delivering playdough, books, crayons and chalk.”</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><img alt="ChildCrisisAZ-Web_FullWidth2" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="a21a2467-06a7-4ac0-8772-c70df6e97830" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_FullWidth2.png" style="padding:15px 0" class="align-center" /></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h3 class="accent-bar-sm">Giving Back to Make Lasting Change</h3> <div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="fc8c8e39-2212-43f6-9042-20a060c19601" style="float:right;display:block;width:479px;" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="fc8c8e39-2212-43f6-9042-20a060c19601" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10571" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial3.png?itok=VCFtaySs" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial3.png?itok=rZ_ij0Zx" alt="ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial3" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial3.png?itok=VCFtaySs" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> <div class="testimonial__content--quote"> <span>"</span>It’s always been our mission to be diverse.

She recently started her own business, M.K.O. Champions, offering life coaching and public speaking services. Wanting to give back to CCA, Melissa joined the Parent Policy Committee. Eventually she became the President of the committee — something that, in hindsight, she says she never saw for herself in the years leading up to today.</p> <p>The Parent Policy Committee has a seat on the organization’s Board of Directors. The committee is made up of a diverse group of parents focused on improving the internal functions of Child Crisis Arizona’s Early Education Program. Parents assist in creating new procedures and policies surrounding children’s services.</p> <p>“I did it to serve, but it was an opportunity to see what it was like to be part of a Board of Directors. I gained insights that helped me with opening my own business,” she said.</p> <p>Melissa admires Child Crisis Arizona because of the organization’s commitment to caring for the entire family unit. It is that same commitment that helped connect Child Crisis Arizona to Enterprise Bank &amp; Trust.</p> <p>“We decided to enter a relationship with Enterprise because we connected with their people and they connected with our mission,” said Taj. “They go above and beyond to support our business and the families we serve.”</p> <p>Child Crisis Arizona has been partnering with Enterprise for the last several years. Enterprise contacted Child Crisis Arizona and asked if the local Phoenix employees could donate teddy bears they had made, and a partnership was born. The relationship cemented after Jeff Friesen, President of Enterprise's Arizona region, joined their Board of Directors. </p> <p>“It’s always great to have a volunteer who is familiar with big numbers and business transactions. Having top level executives like Jeff on the board, representing a large bank and trust, is really benefiting our board,” Taj says.</p> <div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="3b11cd03-3696-442e-8676-b6843a8638ec" style="float:right;display:block;width:479px;" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="3b11cd03-3696-442e-8676-b6843a8638ec" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10576" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial4.png?itok=bmv5aWmJ" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial4.png?itok=WJ_03FKQ" alt="ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial4" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-08/ChildCrisisAZ-Web_Testimonial4.png?itok=bmv5aWmJ" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p>Friesen took a tour and was impressed with the level of work Child Crisis Arizona was achieving. He knew from that point on he wanted to play a role in this organization.</p> <p>“Witnessing the impact Child Crisis Arizona has on the Phoenix community inspired me to get involved,” said Friesen. “I know how much they value Enterprise's financial expertise and guidance, and the volunteer experience really inspires our team.”</p> <p>Enterprise partnered with Child Crisis Arizona on a smaller sponsorship in 2019, an increase in 2020, and continues to provide supportive financial contributions. This year Enterprise sponsored the agency’s annual gala along with other community involvement efforts.</p> <p>Child Crisis Arizona offers online parenting classes and is always looking for participants. Examples of courses include anger management for children, adverse childhood experiences, and managing stress. Child Crisis Arizona is also always looking for more foster homes, as there are more children in the foster care system than there are foster care families.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of New Mexico (RMHC) was looking for a better solution to count the change from the donation boxes that sit at McDonald’s cash registers throughout the area.</p> <p>A McDonald’s owner/operator in Santa Fe approached the bank about their desire to reduce the service fees associated with counting the change. Those charges were the largest service fee on the organization’s account. In addition, RMHC had to call representatives in Florida for their banking needs.</p> <p>Between the challenge with time zones and the previous bank not knowing the Albuquerque market well, RMHC leadership was seeking a better solution.</p> <p>“Not only did the bank significantly drop their service charges, they set us up where we can count the change in-house and scan and deposit checks from our office,” says RMHC of New Mexico Chief Executive Officer Jessica Wright. “I no longer get sent to customer service. I am talking to people that I am comfortable with and have relationships with.”</p> <p><strong>Little did they know how this simple banking solution would blossom into a full fledged partnership.</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--second"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="fda490a4-f656-41ce-8191-70f5e9d37d51" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="fda490a4-f656-41ce-8191-70f5e9d37d51" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10301" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Ronald-McDonald-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=SN8lHnfI" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-07/Ronald-McDonald-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=80Z2On6X" alt="Ronald-McDonald-Web-Testimonial1" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Ronald-McDonald-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=SN8lHnfI" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> <div class="testimonial__content--quote"> <span>"</span>For children facing a serious medical crisis, not having a parent close by for love and support can be scary.

That’s when she first learned about an organization called Beyond Housing®.</p> <p>“I began taking Beyond Housing homeownership and financial courses, and while taking these classes, I found out they were building affordable single-family homes in Pine Lawn,” Harris says. “I knew I had to do whatever it would take for my family to live in one of those houses.”</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--second"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="00f2fcb7-c6c6-473d-a8bb-23b6a569e792" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="00f2fcb7-c6c6-473d-a8bb-23b6a569e792" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10246" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial2.png?itok=Zap4BOyQ" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial2.png?itok=WucucIaT" alt="Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial2" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial2.png?itok=Zap4BOyQ" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> <div class="testimonial__content--quote"> <span>"</span>We believe we can use the home as a beginning point for individual stability that will lead to family stability, which will lead to community stability.<span>"</span> </div> <div class="testimonial__content--attribution"> Chris Krehmeyer, President and CEO <span>Beyond Housing</span> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><img alt="Beyond Housing Web Full Width 1" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="820d67b9-52c7-4b93-9de4-ff3af5eaa135" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/Beyond-Housing-Web-FullWidth1.png" style="padding:15px 0" /></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--twocol-section layout--twocol-section--50-50"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--first"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="cd85d07d-e3e3-43bc-a400-13a04c1d1a94" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="cd85d07d-e3e3-43bc-a400-13a04c1d1a94" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10241" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=Uo_qQEn8" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=IyEEzZtA" alt="Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial1" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial1.png?itok=Uo_qQEn8" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> <div class="testimonial__content--quote"> <span>"</span>Those parcels used to be vacant and abandoned homes that were a threat to public safety.

They “address whole lives and whole communities.”</p> <p>The organization’s “24:1 Initiative” is a nationally recognized community development program created to address various challenges within 24 municipalities in North St. Louis County’s Normandy School District, including the city of Pine Lawn.</p> <p>“Mary reached out to us about the Pine Lawn Manor development, and like many other single moms that we assist, she had really been struggling to make ends meet,” explains Beyond Housing President and CEO Chris Krehmeyer. “She was so motivated to live in one of the homes that it inspired us to work even harder to make sure she could see a better future through better housing."</p> <p>When Beyond Housing decided to build Pine Lawn Manor, a 41-unit, single-family housing development, they sought to build the same level of quality homes that exist in other more established neighborhoods. But they were unable to keep costs low enough to achieve this goal while still making the units affordable.</p> <p>“It’s important that we provide high-quality homes to low income communities with the same comforts and external aesthetics that homes in other neighborhoods have,” says Krehmeyer. That’s how you build thriving communities.”</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--twocol-section layout--twocol-section--50-50"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--first"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><div data-embed-button="paragraphs" data-entity-label="Paragraphs" data-paragraph-id="d03c8010-56f8-4208-a45f-5d4267fc6368" data-langcode="en" data-view-mode="embed" data-entity-embed-display="entity_reference:entity_reference_entity_view" data-entity-embed-display-settings="embed" data-entity-type="embedded_paragraphs" data-entity-uuid="d03c8010-56f8-4208-a45f-5d4267fc6368" class="embedded-entity"> <div class="field field--name-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div id="testimonial-component-10256" class="paragraph paragraph--type--testimonial-component paragraph--view-mode--embed component component__testimonial-component component__testimonial-component--embed"> <div class="grid__container"> <div class="grid__container--items optimized-width"> <div class="grid__container--item"> <div class="testimonial__media"> <img data-src-large="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial4.png?itok=0ooooYPp" data-src-small="https://www.enterprisebank.com/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_sm/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial4.png?itok=tHgkV08Z" alt="Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial4" src="/sites/default/files/styles/testimonial_lg/public/2020-07/Beyond-Housing-Web-Testimonial4.png?itok=0ooooYPp" width="1440" height="807" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-testimonial-lg" /></div> <div class="testimonial__content "> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--second"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Krehmeyer shared the organization's challenges with Nick Overkamp, Vice President, Relationship Manager at Enterprise Bank &amp; Trust. Overkamp has been a member of Beyond Housing’s Board of Directors for almost a decade and is the current Finance Committee Chairman and Treasurer.</p> <p>“When Chris told me about the challenges they were facing with Pine Lawn, I figured our Tax Credit Services team, who specializes in community development solutions, could help,” says Overkamp. Enterprise’s Tax Credit Services team was able to effectively monetize a state Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, a tax incentive to help make safe, affordable housing more accessible for low-income families and seniors, which kept costs in line with Beyond Housing’s development goals.</p> <p>On September 12, 2019, Beyond Housing hosted Pine Lawn Manor’s ribbon cutting ceremony on parcels of land that were once occupied by vacant and abandoned homes. Krehmeyer believes that the new homes not only improve the lives of its residents but also the neighborhood, increasing the area’s tax base and property values, which has a cascading effect on the entire community. The celebration included remarks from Mary Harris, and other residents, about the impact the new development had on her and her family.</p> <p>“It’s like a breath of fresh air. It provides a fresh start to new beginnings — a second chance at life,” says Harris. “It also sets the tone for my dream of homeownership and provides a foundation for success.”</p> <p>“At the end of the day, if community members are just dealing with crisis after crisis, they are going to struggle to move forward,” explains Krehmeyer. “We believe we can use the home as a beginning point for individual stability that will lead to family stability, which will lead to community stability."</p> </div> </div> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><img alt="Beyond-Housing-Web-FullWidth2" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="eead6702-e9f4-4927-9ee7-3cec93a21c7a" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/Beyond-Housing-Web-FullWidth2.png" style="padding:15px 0" /></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--twocol-section layout--twocol-section--50-50"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--first"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h3 class="accent-bar-sm">A Holistic Approach Proves to Be a Winning Formula in the Community</h3> <p><br /> Beyond Housing continues to work in Normandy, using its unique, holistic approach to impact the entire community.</p> <p>“The tree branches and leaves in our logo represent all of the people — from children to adults — that make up our community, and the tree — the community — is firmly rooted, healthy, strong and growing,” explains Gloria Brainsby, Beyond Housing Financial Advising Manager.</p> <p>In 2019, Beyond Housing had 698 households attend its HUD approved Homebuyer Education class, and 190 of the families purchased a home.</p> <p>“My team uses this leafless tree drawing to celebrate victories throughout the year by adding a key — a leaf — to a branch every time we’re able to help a family purchase a new home,” says Brainsby. “Last year, we were thrilled that we filled the tree.”</p> <p>Enterprise’s approach to the monetization of the tax credit used for Pine Lawn Manor not only helped Beyond Housing deliver high quality homes to its residents, but it also helped the organization be seen as a community redevelopment model for the region.</p> <p>“Thanks to Enterprise’s approach to the monetization of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Beyond Housing is a model for community redevelopment for the region, and we believe eventually for the entire country,” says Krehmeyer. “Enterprise has a similar holistic approach to community banking. Whether it’s through volunteerism or providing this sort of financial expertise, over the course of our 20-plus-year relationship, they have helped us improve the lives of the community members who reach out to us each and every day.”</p> <p>“Since becoming a part of the Beyond Housing family — yes, I consider them family because they took me in and built me up — I’ve reached my credit score, budgeting and other financial goals,” says Harris. “And I’ve started saving for homeownership!

With a small staff and an inspired group of volunteers, the organization provides 600 meals a day to children in need. That number is growing daily.</p> <p>“The facility is capable of making up to 2,000 meals a day. We are pacing ourselves but obviously want to do as much as we can to support the community,” says Katherine Freeman, president and CEO of United Way of Santa Fe County.</p> <p>During the school year, The Food Depot works with Kids Kitchen to provide meals to kids after school, outside of the school lunch program. They ramp up in the summer when children may not otherwise have access to fresh, healthy meals. The organization partners with various groups, including the Boys &amp; Girls Clubs and the city of Santa Fe.</p> <p>A big part of the organization’s mission is to educate children and families about food and nutrition. Part of providing a fresh, hot meal is to help kids try new foods and learn about how nutrition impacts their lives.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><img alt="Kids Kitchen" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="0794801f-edc4-4434-b960-a8e4dbd8b0b9" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/KidsKitchenHeroImage_0.png" style="padding:15px 0" /></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div > </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--twocol-section layout--twocol-section--50-50"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--first"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h3 class="accent-bar-sm">Community Partnerships Make It Happen</h3> <p><br /> Kids Kitchen is a great example of northern New Mexico organizations joining forces to positively impact the community.</p> <p>“It took a combination of things to pull this off,” says Sherry Hooper, executive director of The Food Depot. The Food Depot has critical resources such as a strong volunteer base, including drivers, and United Way has the infrastructure that was needed to make it happen.”</p> <p>Bringing the kitchen up to code and making it a functional space for Kids Kitchen was essential to bringing the program to life. In addition, food preparation equipment, a delivery truck and heaters and coolers to transport meals were needed. The build-out of a commercial kitchen isn’t cheap and wasn’t in the budget.</p> <p>Dion Silva, regional president – Santa Fe at Enterprise Bank &amp; Trust, got wind of the Kids Kitchen program and stepped in to offer the financing needed at a lower interest rate and without fees. Another important community partnership was born.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--second"> <div class="block block-layout-builder block__inline-blockbasic"> <div
