Donation supports regional systems to prevent homelessness
SACRAMENTO, CA – River City Bank, Sacramento’s premier business bank, showed its support for ending homelessness and strengthening communities by presenting a $10,000 donation check to Sacramento Steps Forward. The donation supports implementing a new regional coordinated access system to ensure that homelessness is either preventable, brief, or one-time.
“As one of Sacramento’s longstanding community-based businesses, River City Bank is dedicated to seeing our region grow and prosper, and that includes supporting organizations that provide solutions for ending homelessness,” said Steve Fleming, President and CEO of River City Bank. “As the lead agency for Sacramento Continuum of Care, Sacramento Steps Forward is responsible for providing homeless families and individuals with needed housing and support services.”
“Thank you to River City Bank for this generous contribution and for recognizing Sacramento Steps Forward’s work on a comprehensive approach to end homelessness. Homelessness is truly a humanitarian crisis. It touches all of us – from the unimaginable hardships for our unhoused community to the impacts suffered by nearby neighborhoods, businesses, and the community,” said Lisa Bates, CEO of Sacramento Steps Forward. “We are grateful for this investment and the direct impact it will have on systemic solutions in Sacramento.”
River City Bank presented the donation check to Lisa and the SSF executive team members during its client appreciation reception, which was held on September 21, 2022.
As part of the event tradition, River City Bank recognizes and makes a charitable contribution to one of our non-profit clients. River City Bank employees had the challenging, yet rewarding, job of choosing the donation recipient from many charitable organizations with compelling missions.
