NHRC Highlights

We made the White House!

On June 21, the White House and HUD sponsored a meeting honoring homeowners who succeeded because they worked with their housing counselors.  This is part of our campaign to increase the public awareness of housing counseling.  HUD Sec. Julian Castro, FHA Commissioner Ed Golding, and HUD Office of Housing Counseling Director Sarah Gerecke, housing counselors, and homeowners met at the White House.    You can watch the thirty eight minute video (and see many familiar faces) here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/video/2016/06/21/dare-own-dream

We had one homebuying family and their housing counselor come all the way from Hawaii (which explains why you can see leis on some of the participants).

In the picture, from left to right are:

  • Sarah Gerecke, head of HUD Office of Housing Counseling,
  • Shaun who is an active military homebuyer counseled by CEI,
  • Rockea who is a Millennial homebuyer counseled by Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership,
  • Kibsaim who is a Spanish speaking homebuyer counseled by Centro de Apoyo Familiar, Jodi Mobley who is the Director of Housing Programs at Nevada Partners, and
  • Rose Transfiguracion who is a housing counselor with Hawaiian Community Assets.

Many thanks to the homeowners, housing counselors, HUD staff, White House staff, and supporters who helped put this together.  Special thanks to Bank of America for hosting a reception in the evening before and to Ocwen for hosting a lunch after the White House event.
