MISSION

Home Bank’s focus is: “One Team: Creating exceptional customer experiences.”

ABOUT
Founded in 1908, Home Bank has been a part of the economy of South Louisiana for 114 years. Serving businesses and families, Home Bank prides itself on community banking that is rooted at home—local decisions and local service. Home Bank recently announced plans to expand into Texas. In 2022, the bank will finalize a merger with Houston-based Texan Bank, adding five new Home Bank locations for customers.

WHY THEY GIVE
Serving as volunteers and on boards and committees, the Home Bank team is invested in local giving. Causes important to Home Bank include affordable housing and financial literacy, and you’ll often find employees working as volunteers in those areas. However, their bankers also support a variety of nonprofits and causes that lead them to serve.

METHODS
Giving back is part of Home Bank’s core values and culture, whether the method is financial support or volunteerism. Their bankers find unique ways to give, creating donation drives, helping after natural disasters, and more.

Home Bank has reimagined workplace giving, putting employee dollars to work with local schools and nonprofits, while also deepening its involvement and impact in the communities it serves. Through its small grant program called Home Bank Helps, the bank makes impactful donations to local organizations. The program is 100% employee funded and directed. In addition to grant-giving, team members look for ways to partner on projects. Local 501 (c)(3) nonprofits, private schools, and public schools are eligible to apply for funds.

Interested nonprofits can apply for a 2022 grant through April 15 online at home24bank.com. Search keyword “grant” for more information.
