Recently, Chase Home reached out to discuss its mission with The Provident Bank’s Portsmouth branch, which resulted in a $500 investment to support its programs and services for youth and families in active crisis.

Expressing gratitude at the newly formed partnership, Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler said she was impressed at the way The Provident Bank responded to her request for a conversation.

“From the moment we started talking, it was clear they were extremely interested in working with us to meet this community need,” she said. “To see that kind of reaction from a corporate community member is just so gratifying and validating as a nonprofit agency. I look forward to working with them.”

“Chase Home and The Provident Bank both have a rich history of commitment to the communities we serve as well as sharing an innovative approach to finding solutions for our respective clients,” added The Provident Bank’s Josephine Yeo. “It makes sense for us to work together to improve the lives of kids and families who really could use a helping hand…We are very impressed with Chase Home.”

Mike LaLime, Chase Home board member and owner of TRE Restoration & Cleaning, said partnerships with community-minded corporate entities like The Provident Bank are critical to its mission.

“Together, we can make a difference in the lives of kids and families in dire straits,” he said. “I am very thankful to have The Provident Bank as part of our family.”
