At Southern Bancorp Community Partners, we believe in helping working families and economically distressed communities grow through small scale, one-on-one interactions. However, we also believe in achieving large-scale national, state, and community-wide change through public policies that give everyone the opportunity to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
Southern Bancorp Community Partners focuses on a wide range of issues that impact working families, from those that help build wealth such as savings programs and asset building programs, to those that reduce wealth such as a predatory payday lending. Our policy team works with national and state partners in Arkansas, Mississippi, and beyond to ensure that the needs of our communities are addressed by policymakers.
