In 1987, our founders had a vision of putting their money to work as a tool for building financially strong and culturally vibrant communities capable of growing their sown seeds of self-determination.

We have successfully carried out that vision since the 1980s, by connecting investors to communities, lending to nonprofits, small businesses, and cooperatives, and providing financial and real estate consulting to organizations that share our vision of sustainable communities and social, racial, and economic justice.

Since then we’ve invested more than $350 million to projects throughout California, impacting the lives of more than 1.5 million of our neighbors. Our lending and consulting services support organizations that provide affordable housing, equitable and sustainable access to healthy food, community arts, and critical social, medical and youth services.


We promote economic justice and alleviate poverty by increasing the financial resilience and sustainability of community-based nonprofits and enterprises. Through flexible financial products and sound advice, we create opportunities to make socially responsible investments that revitalize Northern and Central California communities.


We envision financially strong and culturally vibrant communities where each person has access to decent jobs, homes, health care, education, and economic opportunities. We work in partnership with individuals and organizations who share our vision of sustainable communities and social and economic justice.

Our Values

Conscious Investment

We deploy capital and knowledge that creates long-term systems change to power structures.


We use evaluation, reflection, and knowledge sharing to inform nimble and innovative approaches to solutions that achieve personal and organizational excellence.

Racial and Economic Equity

We recognize that a history of discriminatory financial practices and intentional disinvestment have contributed to a lack of economic progress in low-income communities and communities of color. Community Vision provides capital and technical assistance for communities that have been systemically disadvantaged to ensure fairness in opportunities, resources, and rights for everyone.

Client Service Focused

We are responsive and consistent in our interactions. Everything starts with our clients’ needs. We adapt our process and offerings accordingly.

Humility and Respect

We value the wealth of experience, insight, and culture rooted in the communities we work with.


We recognize and engage each other’s strengths to achieve a shared vision or goal.


We are honest, accountable, and transparent with each other and our stakeholders. We value and practice sound ethical character and behavior.

Our People

We understand that no one knows your problem better than you do, and we believe that client input is integral to all solutions. Working together, we listen to your concerns and apply our experience and wisdom to tackle the financial challenges our clients face. You are our partner throughout the entire process.

Joi Eubanks : Community Development Officer

Joi Eubanks

Community Development Officer

I’m originally from Memphis TN, and graduated from a Historically Black College, Tennessee State
University, where I majored in broadcast communication. I just knew I was going to be the next Oprah!
Unfortunately, when I moved to Fresno, I was turned off by the cut-throat nature of the broadcast news
market. I quit my job with the local station, became the administrative assistant for a Small Business
Development Center (SBDC), and absolutely fell in love with economic development and helping
entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of business ownership. I was with the SBDC for 10 years and
eventually became the center’s Assistant Director.
After that, I went on to work for a commercial bank and two different CDFIs, including one that was
the largest in the country at one time. I’ve been a staple in the central valley and economic development
world for over 15 years.
As the Community development officer for Community Vision I hope to deepen Community Visions
relationships with minority-owned businesses and Minority led nonprofits, in the Central Valley, as well
as work closely with strategic partners in bringing awareness to issues facing entrepreneurs and
residents of color. Overall, I hope to help the community thrive by providing education, resources, and
business assistance.

Where can you find me when I’m not advocating and connecting with partners and small businesses?
I When I’m not hanging with my 17-year-old son, you can find me in some water as a mermaid! Whether
on one of my boats, my pool, or one of the many conventions, I attend. I’m also an AVID Bird lover. I
have roughly 75 birds ranging from small budgies to pheasants, to my Catalina Macaw named Tim, to
my 9 Adult peacocks! I’m also a motorcycle enthusiast and have a collection of 8 that I ride almost daily!
