"This year's social impact report validates CPF's mission to remove barriers and catalyze housing affordability, providing physical and mental stability, improved finances and reduced health problems in the process," said Crossroads CEO Eric Donnelly. "While it is clear that our borrowers have faced hardships this year as a result of the pandemic, it is also apparent that institutions like ours have played a significant role in promoting housing security and supporting key stakeholders at all levels. We see our social impact as an equally important metric for our double bottom line business and for the investors who place their trust and capital in our vision. The key findings from the report as well as the widespread economic instability the country has experienced this year tell us that many of the communities we interact with are still in need of our support, and we stand ready to assist them."
