Grand Rapids, MI – August 3, 2022 – In an ongoing effort to support and improve local communities, the Union Home Mortgage Foundation is giving back by donating $5,000 to the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based nonprofit Home Repair Services of Kent County.
Home Repair Services of Kent County provides foreclosure intervention counseling and financial education to struggling homeowners. These clients are paired with a counselor who completes a full assessment of mortgage delinquency, conducts an extensive budget analysis, discusses the available options, and assists with any desired negotiations. Financial education workshops are taught by staff, partners and community experts to help families financially prepare for housing emergencies. At Home Repair Services of Kent County, clients receive support and education throughout the entire process, giving them an opportunity for sustainable homeownership.
“Home Repair Services is profoundly grateful to receive funding support from the Union Home Mortgage Foundation. This past year, our Housing Counseling & Financial Education program impacted nearly 400 households with critical foreclosure case management, property tax filing support, and an array of financial literacy workshops. To operate a program like ours ─ one that aspires to help those in crisis and to keep others out of crisis ─ requires special partners who understand the need to do both. Thanks, Union Home Mortgage Foundation, for being just such a partner!”
“Housing provides so much more than just a roof over your head; it is inextricably tied to nearly every aspect of a person’s well-being,” said Bill Cosgrove, President & CEO of Union Home Mortgage. “We’re proud to support Home Repair Services of Kent County with its efforts to provide assistance to struggling homeowners.”
