    For the deaf, hearing or speech impaired: Along with our BankLine Automated Telephone Banking system, we will communicate in our branches by exchanging notes if the approach is more comfortable. Alternatively, we may be able to provide a sign language interpreter for more complex situations on a case-by-case basis.
  • Branch Locations
    We monitor our locations to ensure compliance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), state, and local laws. We also look for opportunities to improve accessibility for the disabled, including matters of accessible ramps, curb cuts, walkways, entrance doors, lobby areas, teller lines, counters and customer service desks.
  • We offer accessible parking spaces compliant with the standards of the ADA to assist our customers who may have a disability and need to park closer to our entrances and lobby area.
  • Automated Teller Machines (ATMs)
    Community West Bank maintains a network of audio-assisted ATMs that have speech output capabilities for people who are blind or visually impaired. These ATMs also meet the height and reach requirements of the ADA.

Online Accessibility

In an effort to ensure the accessibility and usability of our website and web applications, we strive to comply with the technical requirements of Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and 2.1. This is a universally acceptable level of accessibility, with precise technical requirements developed by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Web pages are routinely monitored by a third-party accessibility partner on a regular basis; however, while we strive to make every page accessible to all users, we cannot guarantee that every page conforms to WCAG 2.1 Level AA due to the necessary use of third-party vendors. As such, Community West Bank does not claim full site-wide conformance, instead a partial conformance, as defined by WCAG Level AA 2.1. We cannot ensure conformance of crucial third-party plug-ins and widgets.

Additional Accommodations for Disabled Persons

We review individual requests related to special needs on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is to provide reasonable accommodations to help make accessible banking more convenient. If you find a part of the site that you feel does not conform to Level AA of the WCAG or are having difficulty getting the information you need, we welcome inquiries and will respond promptly to any customer accessibility concerns.

Please use one of the contact methods listed above or feel free to complete the online inquiry form located under Contact Us.
