The NFM Family of Lenders is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We believe that drawing on our differences allows us to create a powerful and innovative workforce to best serve our customers.
We are committed to continuing to broaden our culture of inclusion, while positively impacting the communities we serve with great service and educational programs.
NFM Lending has a DEI committee, comprised of executive leaders and employees. Our diverse workforce and DEI initiatives focus on tangible actions and programs by focusing on Community, Consumer and Company. The DEI committee goals are to create innovative and effective programs that recruit, attract, develop, engage, advance, and retain employees from a variety of backgrounds, including diversity of: race, ethnicity, gender, culture, language, age, gender, and sexual orientation.”
Human Resources Director
“The NFM Family of Lenders’ vision is to transform the mortgage industry landscape through a diverse workforce, business portfolio, and public outreach program. We will accomplish these goals by focusing on the three C’s of Community, Consumer, and Company with the intent to develop future mortgage leaders, educate minority consumers and support generational wealth in underserved communities through the American Dream of homeownership.”
With locations across the nation, we proudly serve a diverse customer base with products that provide solutions for a wide range of home loan financing needs and credit profiles. Through the NFM C.A.R.E.S. program, NFM supports causes that have the greatest positive impact on the communities that the company serves. NFM Lending’s charitable endeavors are geared towards helping United States troops and Veterans, children and families in need, and animal welfare and protection.
Each month one military service member or Veteran is honored as the Salute of the Month. The honoree is featured on the NFM Salute website page with a biography and information about their service. They receive a thank you gift and have a $2,500 donation made in their name to a military-focused charity. To see our Salutes or nominate someone, please visit www.nfmsalute.com.
During our annual Support Our Troops Drive, we collect food, supplies, toiletries, games, puzzles, and other requested items, which are packaged and sent to U.S. troops stationed overseas for the holidays. To date, NFM Lending has sent over 2,500 care packages.
We have also partnered with organizations who share in our desire to focus on
DEI solutions for the communities we serve:
NFM is dedicated to tangible actions and programs that benefit consumers, including educating them on the importance of developing a strong credit profile and how to achieve the dream of homeownership. Our loan programs include solutions for low-down payments, first-time homebuyers, investment properties, Veterans, and everyone between. Our online application and loan status updates are offered in English and Spanish.
We have partnered with HomeFree USA, who provides a bridge to financial strength and homeownership for people of color across America.
NFM believes that homeownership should be attainable by everyone regardless of background. We’re committed to helping all people reach the goal of buying a home, which supports the well-being of communities we serve and creates sustainable wealth that is passed on from generation to generation. Because for every family there is the perfect home and for every home, there is the perfect family.
