This is the second HOPE Inside location opened in a Popular Community Bank branch in New York.

“We are thrilled to launch the HOPE Inside Center in the Bronx, the borough where we opened our first branch in New York more than 50 years ago,” said Brian Doran, New York Metro Region Executive, Popular Community Bank. “We share the same commitment to enhancing our communities and doing all we can to provide financial resources to people who want to take control of their finances and improve their lives.”

The HOPE Inside location at the Popular Community Bank East Tremont Avenue branch offers financial literacy programs and “The Homeownership Program.” The program includes homebuyer education, workshops, guest speakers, and one-on-one counseling to guide potential homeowners through the process of realizing their homeownership dreams.
