SECU Foundation and the North Carolina Housing Foundation unveil the SECU Commons
(May 12, 2015) — Before a crowd of supporters in Winston-Salem today, SECU Foundation Board Chair McKinley Wooten, Jr. and the Director of Operations of The SECU Commons Brian Hahne unveiled the new signage for The SECU Commons, celebrating the efforts of State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) members to help address the issue of homelessness. Representatives from the North Carolina Housing Foundation (NCHF) and the City of Winston-Salem were on hand for the special event, along with numerous SECU Foundation officials, Credit Union staff and Advisory Board volunteers. SECU Foundation presented The SECU Commons with a $1 million challenge grant in November 2014 to help NCHF complete the development of campus facilities for the program aimed at assisting three populations at risk of chronic homelessness – homeless families, youth aging out of foster care and autism spectrum young adults.
