Do You Want To Start Or Grow Your Business?
We Can Help.

Whether you're looking to start a new business, buy an existing one, or expand, Community Futures knows each client has unique needs.

We recognize that not all business ideas are the same and that is why we specialize in taking a grassroots hands-on approach to supporting our clients.

The success of your business requires professional advice and our staff does more than simply providing capital through its loans program. From inception to launch, we'll help you every step of the way. And, as you grow, and make plans or need further support for expansion, we will remain focused on the needs of our clients, the local businesses, and the area's economy as a whole.

We respect your uniqueness.
We offer personalized advice, mentoring, and training.

We are different from other lenders.

We are accessible.  We will come to you if visiting our office isn't convenient.
