We’ve recently come across a nifty idea that’s become an entire movement. Called “Home Matters,” it stresses the idea that home isn’t just four walls and a roof. A home gives self-worth and health, protection to families, security to communities, and ultimately makes America itself more formidable and stronger.

To us here at MortgageKeeper, Home Matters underscores why we work so hard to keep people in their homes. By providing local resources to help out, we hope to mend family budgets so that mortgage payments are more easily met. The folks at Home Matters (who find support from sponsors like Citi Community Development, NeighborWorks America, and Wells Fargo), are working together to think more about this concept, and make homeownership not just the “American Dream” but a reality.
