Welcome to our Lake Forest, CA, office, home to the Clearinghouse CDFI corporate headquarters. This is where it all began—the idea to create a great company with a dynamic corporate culture and a mission to provide community development finance that uplifts our communities.

Since our inception in 1996, Clearinghouse CDFI’s service area has grown immensely, but our commitment has never changed. Every day, our team, many of whom have been here 5+ years, works hand in hand to ensure that Clearinghouse CDFI, its staff, and all of the communities we serve—thrive.
