Each month, Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer Jim Peffley with thought leaders, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
In this episode, Jim sits down with Adina Abramowitz, founder of Consulting for Change and a pioneer and recognized leader in the CDFI industry. Adina consults with CDFIs nationwide and served with Opportunity Finance Network, guiding the organization’s strategy to develop CDFI growth. In this wide-ranging conversation, Adina discusses CDFIs as a tool to bring about social justice in housing and communities, the role they play as a correction to capital markets and the challenges they face going forward.
