The fantabulous people at Dayton Mortgage Bankers Association presented us with a phenomenal check for $2.000 for our programming this past Thursday night! They are just a wonderful group of caring, committed, generous people who are doing so much for our community each and every month in their gatherings. It just feels good to be in their midst. Mike and Drew and the gang- so many to appreciate!- do so much to spread our word, and have many of their coworkers volunteering for various projects, and I am just so grateful. We at FLOC are most lucky to have such a strong support in this association. Thank you to all!

DMBA Partners with DABR in Westwood

Saturday April 30th the Dayton Mortgage Bankers Association partnered with the Dayton Area Board of Realtors and Rebuilding Together Dayton working on a home in the  Westwood neighborhood of Dayton.   Volunteers from both groups came together painting, landscaping, restoring foundation concerns, and replacing the front door just to name a few jobs.  It was a fun day of partnership and spirits weren't dampened by the gray and rainy weather.  The owner of the home, who applied through Rebuilding Together Dayton,  was a longtime and proud resident of the Westwood Neighborhood.   

Rebuilding Together is the nation’s leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities. Our network of 166 affiliates provides rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of low-income Americans at no cost.   Rebuilding Together Dayton, formerly known as Christmas in April, was founded in 1996. Since its inception, Rebuilding Together Dayton has been able to impact over 1,500 homeowners in our community thanks to the support of our sponsors and volunteers.
