NAR Helps Military Families Facing Foreclosure

Posted:

Homeownership is integral to the American dream, and no one deserves to have their dreams fulfilled more than military families who sacrifice their lives for their country.

But foreclosure is a reality, affecting military service members and civilians alike and causing suffering within already stressed military families, larger military and civilian communities, the housing market, and the entire U.S. economy.

NAR OPERATION HOME RELIEF: SOCIAL NETWORKING TO STOP MILITARY FORECLOSURE

The National Association of Realtorsr, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

In response to military foreclosure, the National Association of Realtors' (NAR) offers the HouseLogic website, a free, military-friendly site devoted to homeownership education.

In addition, NAR has launched Operation Home Relief, a Facebook Causes campaign brought to military service members by the National Association of Realtorsr' HouseLogic to raise awareness, support, and funding for the nonprofit foreclosure assistance organization USA Cares.

NAR's HouseLogic promises to donate $1 to USA Cares for every Facebook user who clicks "like" on the Operation Home Relief Facebook Cause page. HouseLogic will also match individual donations up to $20,000.

USA CARES ABOUT MILITARY FORECLOSURE

USA Cares is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that helps post-9/11 military and their families with basic needs, assists veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families, and works to prevent private military home foreclosures and evictions.

William H. Nelson, Executive Director of USA Cares, says military service members shouldn't have to continue facing danger and hardships when they return home from active duty.

"U.S. military service members bravely face danger around the world every day on behalf of all Americans. Yet, some military service members and their families also face financial dangers and hardships at home," said William H. Nelson, executive director, USA Cares. "USA Cares' sole mission is to help these service members and their families in their time of financial need. To that end, we're excited to have the support of HouseLogic and the National Association of Realtorsr. Their new Facebook Causes campaign highlights the work USA Cares is doing, reminding Americans of the many challenges faced by U.S. military service members and their families, and generates support via Facebook for the help that we're offering every day."

Military families anywhere in America can apply for assistance through the USA Cares web site.

PUTTING A FACE ON MILITARY FORECLOSURE

NAR President Vicki Cox Golder notes that "HouseLogic's Operation Home Relief aims to help sustain homeownership for military families who have already given so much to support our country," and hope others will join together with us to support this worthy cause.

According to Cox Golder, HouseLogic's Operation Home Relief aims to rally citizens to support the military service members who bravely support our country, and allow them to stay secure in their own homes.
