Evernorth Rural Ventures Projects
Small businesses, schools, nonprofits, manufacturers, and more have benefitted from ERV financing. When organizations get the resources that they need to expand their capacity, employment increases and investments grow. Most importantly, the people of our communities are better served.
We are happy to announce that Cynthia (Cindee) Lacasse has accepted Evernorth’s newly created position of Executive Vice President and Chief Program Officer. Ms. Lacasse will be joining us beginning May 29th. Cindee is an affordable housing industry leader with deep transactional knowledge and a commitment to Evernorth’s mission. She will be based in Portland and serve a key, externally-facing role with Evernorth’s investors, developers, and funders.

Today’s housing market is broken. A lack of housing limits people’s mobility. Seniors who are overhoused cannot move to a more appropriate home; workers who want to secure better jobs cannot find a home in strong employment centers; people who are ready to purchase homes cannot find one they can afford.
While reduced mobility is true for everyone, it really impacts people with less financial resources.
Why is there not enough housing here? Economists and others provide data and analysis about demographic and economic trends that impact housing supply and begin to explain some of the issues.
