by Steve Randall29 Jul 2019

Non-bank lender Freedom Mortgage is supporting a program by non-profit Habitat for Humanity which helps provide affordable homes for veterans.

The Veterans Build Program builds, rehabilitates and repairs homes in partnership with US military veterans in need of affordable housing.

The program operates across all 50 states and in more than 70 countries and Freedom Mortgage will support projects in three communities with home improvement projects in Palmyra, New Jersey and Jacksonville, Florida; and a full home rehab in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Freedom Mortgage will also support the program through its recently launched Volunteer Time Off initiative which allows employees paid time working out of the office for approved non-profit organizations to make a positive impact in the communities where they live and work.

"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."
