“As part of our Company’s commitment to creating positive outcomes for its customers, particularly those who are suffering financial hardships, we partner with organizations such as the NAACP and NID Housing Counseling Agency to work directly with families in need of solutions and provide relief to distressed homeowners,” said Jill Showell, Senior Vice President of Government and Community Relations at Ocwen. “Together, we are committed to helping borrowers qualify for loan modification options, so they can better afford their homes.”
Ocwen entered into a partnership in 2014 with the NAACP to create the "Help & Hope for Homeowners" initiative. To date, Ocwen and NAACP have hosted 17 events, and in 2019, events will be held in Los Angeles, CA, Newark, NJ, Miami, FL and New York, NY. Since January 1, 2008, Ocwen has completed more than 800,000 loan modifications nationwide, many of which included a principal reduction for borrowers whose mortgage exceeded the current value of the home.
“The NAACP has seen firsthand the positive impact Ocwen has made in the lives of many families at risk of losing their homes at these local borrower outreach events throughout the country,” said Jacquelyne Ward-Richardson, National Fair Housing Manager of Economic Programs at the NAACP. “Continuing our shared work to help distressed borrowers better afford their homes is one of the most effective ways the NAACP can help strengthen local minority and low-income communities.”
