The History of Our Program

HomeStreet’s Affinity Program benefits were originally developed in 1994 with the City of Seattle to help police and fire department employees qualify for homes in neighborhoods close to where they worked. The goals were to improve emergency response time, reduce commute times and increase homeownership opportunities in Seattle. The program became a success and has since expanded to include a full bank at work program. These benefits have been adopted by nearly 200 employers in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho and Hawaii.
