Enhancing the Quality of Life in California Communities Through Homeownership

Letty Plascencia is AVP, Counseling Manager with NeighborWorks Orange County, a nonprofit homeownership center. She coaches families to make financial decisions that will help them achieve the American Dream of homeownership. Banc of California helps NeighborWorks Orange County make a bigger impact in their community by sponsoring programs, which offer financial education classes. The bank also sponsors their green initiative, helping make sustainable homes to live in.

Some programs prepare people for homeownership through assistance with down payment options. Other programs help families who are not ready to purchase a home yet take positive financial steps toward achieving their dream. “Everything we do impacts the community. I’ve helped three generations achieve homeownership. I love to see their faces after they’ve accomplished the American Dream. They trust in our guidance and coaching,” said Letty Plascencia.

“We’re engaged with Banc of California and share in their passion for homeownership. Without their support, some of these programs wouldn’t be out there in the community. ”
