F.R.E.E.D.O.M. Affiliate – Orlando, Florida
The Catch the Dream Orlando initiative calls for Freddie Mac to work with the Mortgage and Credit Center of Orlando, New Covenant Community Development Corporation, Grand Avenue Economic Community Development Corporation, F.R.E.E.D.O.M., Iglesia Ebeneezer, Catholic Social Services, Bank of America, SunTrust Bank and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. These partners will work collectively to provide expanded offerings throughout the MSA starting with community wide outreach that will lead to comprehensive education ultimately resulting in qualified referrals for the participating lending institutions.
The primary objective of this initiative is to expand the availability of affordable homeownership within the minority community of Orlando, FL with a particular focus on African-American and Latino area residents. Each family will have an action plan to homeownership developed for them and at the point the counseling agencies determine their readiness the families will be referred to the qualified participating lenders.
