Kindergarten to College has achieved its goal of reaching all elementary schools in the San Francisco Unified School District. This year, Citi Microfinance and the Citi Foundation partnered to drive a discussion on agricultural value chain finance through a panel titled "From Farm to Plate" (check out this blog post for one attendee's take). Citi Community Development was proud to support the 38th Annual Lunar New Year Banquet of its long-time community partner, Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE.) Citi Foundation has supported the work of AAFE's affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, a CDFI and technical assistance provider focused on low-income, minority and women-owned businesses in low-income immigrant neighborhoods. CurrenC SF is a partnership between the San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, and the United Way of the Bay Area, with generous support from Citi Community Development, Visa and the Levi Strauss Foundation.
For employers, moving to direct deposit and paperless pay can lower payroll processing costs by up to 90 percent, and eliminates the headache of lost and stolen checks. CurrenC SF is an extension of the City's pioneering program Bank on San Francisco, which has provided over 72,000 bank accounts to low-income San Franciscans and spread to more than 100 cities across the country.
More than 67,000 households in San Francisco are paid with paper checks, including 68 percent of low-income workers. Several CurrenC SF Employer Champions including Recology, Blue Shield of California, William Watlington Foods, Walgreens, Rickshaw Bagworks, Bi-Rite Market and Goodwill Industries were recognized for their leadership in financial empowerment efforts and participated in the launch.
The CurrenC SF website provides resources to help employers initiate or expand direct deposit in their organizations. As Black History Month draws to a close, I am mindful of how fortunate I am to work for two organizations that are strongly committed to the twin, complementary goals of diversity and empowerment.
Similarly, New York City Mission Society, for which I am Chair of the Board of Directors, promotes the positive development of underserved young people and families in order to strengthen communities and, as a consequence, our city's diversity.
As it turns out, both Citi and New York City Mission Society are celebrating 200 years of service in 2012.
Citi's commitment to diversity spans the organization a€” particularly through the activities of Citi's Employee Networks a€” and the calendar, with events and activities highlighting the months that have been formally designated to celebrate the culture, history and contributions of various communities. Across the country, Citi's African Heritage Networks (AHN) provide a wide range of educational, cultural and fellowship-building opportunities during African American History Month. Ellen Stafford, who has been with Citi in Irving, Texas for a little over four years, got involved with the Dallas-Fort Worth AHN as Communications Chair this year. As Executive Recruiter for North America, Ellen is very aware that Citi provides an even playing field on which qualified applicants, both within and outside Citi, can compete. Ellen is shifting her recruiting focus from IT to sustaining Citi's overall culture of diversity. More broadly, Ellen would like to see an increase in positive, healthy messages in popular culture, particularly for children, and a continued and strong policy focus on education. Annette Griffin of Baltimore agrees about the importance of education and how helpful it can be to have a mentor, as she did. Annette is a Senior HR Generalist and supports employees in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
In Columbus, Ohio, Jenine Johnson of Securities Processing notes that Citi has had a major impact on diversity in her metropolitan area, thanks in particular to the leadership of the Columbus Office Director Mark Bjorstrom.
Jenine has taken an active role herself in expanding diversity, including introducing Citi's African Heritage Network in Columbus. Jenine strongly values African American History Month and all the diversity months that Citi celebrates. Willie Henry Jr., of Citi's Graduate Recruitment Team in Jacksonville, Florida, is co-chair of the AHN there. Willie draws inspiration from football legend Jerry Rice a€” "who showed that, with the right tools and hard work, you can compete with anyone even without traditional stamps of status" a€” and from his own brother-in-law, who moved up the ranks at one of the country's largest retailers.
On July 17, 2009, a national consortium of non-profit affordable housing developers submitted an application to the U.S. CPLC has organized this coalition in partnership with National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders (NALCAB). Listen to Jason Ott's experiences with the San Miguel Cristo Rey Corporate Internship Program. Citi volunteers will contribute about 150 service hours at local VITA sites this tax season.
Volunteers also will be out in force at Tucson's 2011 Money Faire on April 2 to help the United Way of Tuscon and Southern Arizona's mobile VITA team prepare tax returns for free. Citi has partnered with United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona to transform and expand a successful, six-year financial education program called Citi Youth into a dynamic and holistic family financial capability center, called the Prosperity Center.
Imagine teaching a young person about how to find available college scholarships and then helping his parents complete the standard financial education application form. With the Prosperity Center, Citi has partnered with United Way (UW) of Tucson and Southern Arizona to transform and expand a successful, six-year financial education program called Citi Youth into a dynamic and holistic family financial capability center.
The Prosperity Center offers financial education classes from 3-6pm, when students typically participate in after-school programs, and will remain open until at least 7pm so that adults (including those who don't have children at the host school) also can participate in workshops and avail themselves of the Center's other asset-building services.
The Citi Youth financial education program, now in its sixth year, teaches basic financial concepts to youth aged 5-16 and also offers "train-the-trainer" sessions for financial education teachers. Citi Community Development has partnered with the USC-operated MBDA Business Center in Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles Mayor's Office of Economic & Business Policy, the Southern California Minority Business Development Council, SBA SCORE, and three ethnic minority chambers to launch the Bridges to Business Success (B2BS) Program to provide an advanced business training program focused on building the capacity of minority small business owners in Southern California. With a lending commitment of more than $100 million, Citi is helping to revitalize the Bayview district of San Francisco. AnewAmerica Community Corporation's Green Business Certificate program" part of its comprehensive, three-year Virtual Business Incubator model" educates and encourages budding, low-income entrepreneurs to adopt green, sustainable business practices. Since the Green Business Certificate program began in 2008, 270 people have received intensive training in green business practices and 80 have achieved green business certification.
In California's Central Valley, Citi has invested more than $28,000 to support four EITC sites. In 2010, with Citi's support, local VITA sites helped bring over $14.9 million in tax refunds back to more than 11,000 low- and moderate-income clients and their local communities. The Citi Foundation supports the Financial Literacy and Asset Development Program, a ten-week course that teaches concepts and skills for saving money, using credit and practicing sound money management. Participants spend twenty hours in classroom sessions and receive individualized guidance in creating personalized money management plans and analyzing their credit scores with the goal of repairing damaged credit. In California, Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation is making affordable housing available and sustainable. In 2009, the Citi Foundation provided a grant to Cal State University Northridge (CSUN) Student Outreach and Recruitment Services to support its College Can Happen Initiative (CCHI), a strategic and comprehensive program to improve enrollment at the university. CCHI provides information and encouragement to middle and high school students and their parents, in low to moderate-income (LMI) communities in San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, to help them prepare for entrance into a four-year college. Many of the students reached by CCHI would be first-generation college students, and the program aims to foster a college-going culture. As part of the CCHI program, Citi volunteers have taught financial education workshops at CSUN on how to manage finances on a student budget, credit, savings and investing. Citi is working with Self-Help to expand financial inclusion for thousands of Californians. A supportive and welcoming environment, achieved through staff preparation and branch design. Additionally, through financial education that is provided, innovatively, to customers waiting in line, the Micro Branch encourages individuals who use only its check cashing services to expand their relationship by becoming savings account holders and credit union members.

Jose came regularly to the Micro Branch, every Friday, to cash his check and send money to his family. Read the latest announcement from the City and County of San Francisco about the Kindergarten to College program. Kindergarten to College is an easy-to-use savings platform that will help more families start saving earlier for college. The program will continue to motivate college savings through additional matches and incentives.
An important part of the Kindergarten to College program is its financial education component. In a recent USA Today supplement on Financial Literacy, Citi's collaboration with the City and County of San Francisco is featured prominently in the article "Milk money, crayons, bank account," and Bob Annibale, Global Director of Citi Microfinance and Community Development, is among the Panel of Experts weighing in on Youth Financial Literacy.
On October 5, 2010, the City and County of San Francisco and Citi announced the launch of the Kindergarten to College partnership, the nation's first city-wide, universal college savings program for children.
Citi's commitment and success in developing innovative, collaborative and impactful solutions to critical community needs was recognized on November 8, 2011, when Citi Community Development received the Community Impact Award at the 15th Annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium.
Jenny Flores, Senior Vice President for Citi Community Development in California, receives the Community Impact Award on behalf of Citi from Edward B.
The Community Impact Award is bestowed each year "to dedicated compliance professionals and their institutions," to honor "outstanding and innovative efforts in furtherance of the goals of the Community Reinvestment Act." The Award also is intended to encourage innovative community lending and to provide the financial industry with examples of superb programs that have made a large impact on underserved communities. K2C was developed with participation across Citi's businesses and with leadership by Citi Microfinance and Citi Community Development.

The award was accepted on behalf of Citi by Jenny Flores, Senior Vice President for Citi Community Development in California. Citi is a longtime supporter of the FRC's Family Economic Success Program, which includes free tax preparation services for low-income individuals and families through VITA.

Microloans that enable people to start small businesses and lift themselves out of poverty have proven their effectiveness in developing countries.
The program makes loans of $250, $500 and $1000 to women with very low incomes to empower them to start small businesses in their communities. With Citi's support, FFW has been able to expand its impact by opening new loan centers in the poorest communities of San Diego County. The program benefits primarily Latin American and African immigrant women, specifically those who have no banking or credit history and lack access to capital.
April 3, 2015 by Chief Editor Leave a Comment Ten years since adopting the Hyogo Framework for Action shortly after the Indian Ocean Tsunami, government representatives have gathered in Sendai to negotiate a new framework for global action to reduce the risks of disasters.
May 19, 2014 by Chief Editor Leave a Comment 15 November 2013 — WHO is working with the Government of the Philippines and international partners to reach survivors of Typhoon Haiyan who need medical care. May 14, 2014 by Chief Editor Leave a Comment 28 November 2013 — UNICEF and WHO today called on those involved in the response to the Philippines’ Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) disaster to promote and protect breastfeeding to avoid unnecessary illness and deaths of children. Associate Pastor Ben Davidson of Bethany Community Church learned a valuable lesson during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that benefitted him and his congregation the morning of Nov.
His quick thinking reminds me when disasters occur; having a plan can save lives and help pivot a community toward a strong recovery.
Immediately following the disaster, Bethany Community Church joined its fellow members of the Washington Ministerial Association, AmeriCorps and the Illinois Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster to help coordinate the community’s recovery efforts. The story of Washington, IL, and Bethany Community Church is a reminder of the care and compassion that faith-based organizations can provide all survivors in times of disaster. I encourage you to know what to do before disaster strikes by joining the thousands of faith-based and community members on the National Preparedness Coalition faith-based community of practice and connecting with faith and community leaders across the country working on preparedness. Being prepared contributes to our national security, our nation’s resilience, and our personal readiness.
Editor’s Note: The views expressed in this blog post do not necessarily represent the official views of FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, or the United States Government.
The role of law enforcement in responding to a disaster is very similar to the day-to-day role of public safety and supporting the community. During a disaster, police officers play a key role in many operations including: search and rescue, evacuations, door-to-door checks, and maintaining overall public safety within the community. Responding to disasters is a shared responsibility, and those in law enforcement are aware that emergency management planning is for all hazards and that it takes a team effort to keep our communities safe. Editor’s Note: Police Chief Magazine is a publication from the International Association of Chiefs of Police and serves as the professional voice of law enforcement and supports programs and research, as well as training and other professional services for the law enforcement community. As emergency responders, we often feel a need to “be brave”, impervious to the bad things we see, stoic in the face of tragedy.
Immediately following hurricanes Katrina and Rita, I found myself in New Orleans, serving in the city’s Emergency Operations Center as a Safety Officer. A pile of debris, what looked like the roof of a garage lay atop what was left of other structures, all commingled in the corner of a lot, where it had come to rest against another house. It was over a year after I returned home from my service in New Orleans before I could tell that story to anyone without physically choking up.
I submit this as an example of the kind of stress we all face as emergency or disaster responders. Responders need to take care of their own health to maintain the constant vigilance they need for their own safety. Try to eat a variety of foods and increase your intake of complex carbohydrates (for example, breads and muffins made with whole grains, granola bars). Recognize and accept what you cannot change—the chain of command, organizational structure, waiting, equipment failures, etc. Make as many daily decisions as possible to give yourself a feeling of control over your life.
Spend time with others or alone doing the things you enjoy to refresh and recharge yourself. Be aware that recovery is not a straight path but a matter of two steps forward and one back. Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) is a facilitator-led group process conducted soon after a traumatic event with individuals considered to be under stress from trauma exposure.

Como dijo el Presidente Obama esta manana, continuaremos apoyando los esfuerzos de respuesta y recuperacion con todos los recursos a nuestra disposicion para ayudar a los afectados por el tornado. AT&T is committed to delivering the highest levels of service, quality and reliability for our customers under all circumstances.
Atlanta hosted the AT&T Network Disaster Recovery Showcase this past week in Downtown Atlanta.
AT&T has continued to enhance network redundancy in disaster-prone areas, which includes the installation of more back-up and permanent generators at critical cell sites and switching facilities, location of critical equipment to less vulnerable areas, upgrade of electronics in many locations, replacement of copper wiring with fiber optic cable, elevation of switches critical to network operations above expected flood levels, and protection of physical facilities against flooding. A critical element of AT&T’s efforts to maximize network reliability is its ability to swiftly respond when disaster strikes. Distributing extended battery life and portable generators and maintaining existing fixed generators. Topping off generators with fuel at cell sites and central and field-level switching facilities.
Staging generators in safe locations for their immediate deployment once a storm has passed. Can't beat fresh food storage with the Ankomn SaviorGadgets and products for the kitchen are some of the best items to review.
Debossed letters are then filled with white permanent coloring for a message that really stands out. But sociologist Eric Klinenberg says we should build more libraries and community centers for people to go during their time of need. The Skoll World Forum, viewed by many as the social impact sector's version of the World Economic Forum meetings in Davos, Switzerland, brought together 900 highly-selected attendees from leading organizations to explore new ways for civil society, often in partnership with business and government, to address global challenges like financial inclusion. Bob Annibale, Global Director of Citi Microfinance and Community Development, led a conversation with representatives from Nestle, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Root Capital (a Citi Foundation grantee) about how to bring additional value to smallholder farmers that grow staples like coffee and cocoa that many multinational buyers in turn sell to consumers.

To date, 107 businesses have utilized Chef Center's community kitchen and their business training programs. The full extent of the disaster is becoming increasingly clear, with dozens of separate sites needing assistance.
I have learned this lesson many times through the faith leaders I’ve engaged as director of the DHS Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships.
Their story reinforces the power of a whole community, “survivor centric” approach and the important role and responsibility of faith leaders in preparing their communities before disasters strike. In preparing for a disaster, police officers trust in their training and capitalize on their knowledge of a community. In the ten months I served, four of those months were with the New Orleans Fire Department‘s Urban Search and Rescue team. We had been given an address for a couple of residents that had been reported missing by the family- two brothers who had not been heard from since before Katrina had struck. After a bit more digging and removal of debris around the perimeter, the dog again alerted- this time on a bit of blue canvas half buried in the dried mud. Of all of the things I had seen or heard during those 10 months- of all of the death and destruction I had witnessed.. Some people experience these reactions immediately at the scene, while for others symptoms may occur weeks or months later. Workers should seek mental health support from a disaster mental health professional if symptoms or distress continue for several weeks or if they interfere with daily activities.
Responders must be able to stay focused on the job in the dynamic, changing emergency environment. Coworkers may be intently focused on a particular task and may not notice a hazard nearby or behind. Responders who are exhausted, stressed, or even temporarily distracted may place themselves and others at risk. They are providing disaster related information and taking FEMA disaster assistance registrations. Vision Source is providing local residents with eye care who were impacted by the recent tornado on May 20, 2013. Nuestros pensamientos y oraciones con las familias y comunidades que han sido afectadas por los tornados.
Ayer, el Presidente Obama declaro un desastre mayor para el estado de Oklahoma, haciendo disponible fondos de asistencia federal a los individuos y familias en los condados de Cleveland, Lincoln, McClain, Oklahoma, y Pottawatomie.
Puede que se anadan mas condados o formas de asistencia una vez finalicen las evaluaciones.
Estos realizaran la mision de evaluar, notificar y preparar un informe (AIR, por sus siglas en ingles) para ayudar a los colaboradores federales, estatales, locales, tribales y territoriales recaudar informacion sobre las areas afectadas durante las primeras horas, dias y semanas despues del desastre. Este centro promueve la cooperacion entre varias agencias y coordina la respuesta federal ante desastres naturales y emergencias, para apoyar las solicitudes de asistencia de los estados.
Es probable que no haya servicio telefonico despues de un desastre, por lo que estos metodos pueden resultar mas eficaces.
That’s why we’ve invested more than $500 million in our Network Disaster Recovery (NDR) organization since it was formed.
It gives users a chance to cut some fresh vegetables, eat some delicious fruit or save some soup for later.

In addition, Citi has provided Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), which are matched saving accounts, through FRC.
As an added benefit, the participating small businesses will renovate foreclosed properties and increase the supply of affordable housing.
Exercises portraying the situations (large- and small-scale events) help better prepare officers and allow them to fully understand the resources needed for each event and apply that information to each community’s needs. The very parts of our nature that drive us to respond to disasters- to help those most affected- also prevents us from turning a completely blind eye to what we witness. Searching through what remained of the home using the dog teams and literally picking the structure apart with an excavator, the remains of the brothers were finally located.
Often responders do not recognize the need to take care of themselves and to monitor their own emotional and physical health. Mental fatigue, particularly over long shifts, can greatly increase emergency workers’ risk of injury.
During the group process, participants are encouraged to describe their experience of the incident and its aftermath, followed by a presentation on common stress reactions and stress management. Visit the Small Business Administration’s website and Ready.gov for tips and resources on preparing your business for an emergency.

Climbing over stinking refuse and debris, trying to block out the fact that these had been people’s homes- where children had been raised, homework done, Christmases and birthdays celebrated. I never learned her name, only that she had been 6 or 7 years old, and had been wearing the knapsack, ready for her parents to decide whether they were going to evacuate or not. Those whose duties puts them “in the trenches”, working first hand with victims and the worst of the destruction are the ones most at risk. The following guidelines contain simple methods for workers and their team leaders to help themselves and their team members. Inside the knapsack were a couple of dolls, and other items that were obviously of great importance to her. To reach Rick with a question or comment, contact him at this address or follow him on Twitter.
Frustrated and tired, the team called off the search, sure that what the dogs had alerted on had probably been fragments carried by wildlife from another location.
He casually mentioned that he had thought about buying a house one day but knew it would be difficult since he did not have any credit history. Law enforcement can help communicate this information to the emergency management team and can offer support to other members of the team by simply being a presence in the neighborhoods.
The teller described our 'My Fresh Start' loan, a product she was very familiar with since she had recently completed her own loan. She mentioned the benefits of the loan: in addition to building credit history it is structured so the member amasses $500 in savings when the loan is paid off. In the span of 12 months, Jose went from being a repeat check-cashing client to an account-holder with a 'My Piggy Bank' account and, now, a borrower.
