Freedom Mortgage partners with Habitat for Humanity to support Veterans Build program
Nationwide mortgage lender will help U.S. military veterans with full home rehab and improvement projects
ATLANTA (July 26, 2019) – Freedom Mortgage Corporation, a non-bank mortgage company that also supports the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and government-insured lending, partnered with Habitat for Humanity to support the nonprofit housing organization’s Veterans Build program, which builds, rehabilitates and repairs homes in partnership with U.S. military veterans in need of affordable housing.
Habitat partners with homeowners across all 50 states and in more than 70 countries to build or improve a safe, decent place they can call home. This year, Freedom Mortgage will support Habitat’s Veterans Build projects in three communities where Freedom Mortgage operates: home improvement projects in Palmyra, New Jersey, and Jacksonville, Florida, and a full home rehab in Indianapolis. The Veterans Build project in New Jersey will be the first to be completed.
Freedom Mortgage’s Habitat partnership also supports the company’s recently launched Volunteer Time Off program. The program provides Freedom Mortgage employees paid time off working out of the office for approved nonprofit organizations to make a positive impact in the communities where they live and work. The partnership with Habitat will provide thousands of volunteer hours for Freedom Mortgage employees.
“Habitat for Humanity does so much for families in need of decent, affordable housing,” said Stanley Middleman, CEO of Freedom Mortgage. “I’m very excited to be working with such an extraordinary organization to help our U.S. military veterans and their families improve their homes and living conditions. This is a great partnership that will continue making the dream of homeownership accessible for so many.”
