Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation Supports Home Ownership Opportunities in New Hamsphire

Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation has granted NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire $10,000 to support the education, coaching and counseling services offered by HOMEteam in New Hampshire. This is the first contribution made by Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation to the organization since Eastern Bank expanded into New Hampshire. The contribution supports pre-purchase and post-purchase homeownership education and financial literacy education services in Nashua, Manchester, Concord and Laconia. HOMEteam is a collaboration between NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire, CATCH Neighborhood Housing, and Laconia Area Community Land Trust (LACLT) for the delivery of these services in the state.

“We welcome Eastern Bank to New Hampshire and appreciate the Foundation’s generous support to help New Hampshire families attain their goal of financial security and homeownership,” stated Robert Tourigny, Executive Director.

“Eastern Bank is dedicated to supporting the communities we serve,” said Eastern Bank’s Joe Reilly, Regional President, New Hampshire. “We’re proud to contribute to HOMEteam, which provides potential and current homeowners and renters with much needed financial tools and resources here in New Hampshire.”
