Who is Partners In Charity?
Partners In Charity Mission Statement:
Since its inception in 2000, Partners In Charity’s mission for over a decade has been to provide quality housing, solutions for housing related problems through counseling, critical education related to housing including financial literacy targeting the vital needs of an under-served population: low to moderate income families and individuals, veterans and senior citizens.
Partners In Charity is a not-for-profit, 501c3, HUD approved housing counseling agency providing one on one housing counseling, classroom education and seminars for pre-purchase, foreclosure intervention/mortgage modification and mortgage scam assistance. We also offer rental counseling and address financial literacy and budgeting within these counseling and classroom services.
In an effort to help stop foreclosures and assist with stabilizing neighborhoods in our communities, we are participating in multiple programs and have become affiliated with housing counseling intermediaries. These intermediaries and programs provide grant and program funding so that we can offer mortgage delinquency counseling and workshops free of charge to homeowners struggling to keep their homes.

Low to Moderate Income Housing Program
PIC is approved by HUD to purchase and rehab HUD homes and provide down payment assistance and secondary financing. PIC has developed a Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Through partnerships developed with major entities such as Chase, Washington Mutual, Citi, Wells Fargo, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, we are receiving donated properties. In turn, we have successfully rehabilitated these properties located in economically challenged neighborhoods, and have created affordable housing for low income families and seniors, veterans and disabled individuals.
