FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Sept. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ditech Financial LLC (“Ditech”) announced that it is hosting a series of events with the housing nonprofit Rebuilding Together to provide critical home repairs to low-income residents throughout the United States.
“Here at Ditech, helping people fulfill their dreams of becoming homeowners is the motivation behind our work day in and day out,” said David Schneider, President at Ditech. “However, our work doesn’t end once our customers purchase their homes. We want to ensure that these houses remain safe and healthy for all of our homebuyers. We are honored to work side-by-side with Rebuilding Together to make this a reality for all homeowners, especially those in low-income, underserved communities.”
The series began on September 22 with a ribbon-cutting event in Concord, New Hampshire, celebrating the work done by volunteers with Rebuilding Together and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities to revitalize Camp Spaulding’s play space. Camp Spaulding is a partnership between the YMCA and Concord Child and Family Services that nurtures and creates a sense of community among campers of all ages through a wide variety of programs. Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Ditech Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, made an appearance on behalf of Ditech at the event, signing autographs and posing for photos with children from the camp. Two more events will take place in 2016 with local Rebuilding Together affiliates in Minnesota and Texas:
- A community revitalization project to be held on October 13 in St. Paul, Minnesota, in partnership with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and Urban Roots ‒ an organization whose mission is to build vibrant and healthy communities through food, conservation and youth development.
- A rebuild project on November 3 in Dallas, Texas, as part of Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas’ Operation Freedom – an initiative to repair or rebuild the homes of 60 veterans in 60 days.
Ditech recently announced a formal partnership with Rebuilding Together as a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility efforts to strengthen communities and make homeownership an achievable and maintainable dream.
“Rebuilding Together is proud to work with companies like Ditech that have made a commitment to serving homeowners in a meaningful and powerful way,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “By building coalitions with these forward-thinking business leaders, we can generate greater impact, empowering homeowners to be the change makers in the communities where they live.”
