WASHINGTON, DC – The Colonial Family of Companies and the Mortgage Bankers Association Opens Doors Foundation (MBA Opens Doors) announced that MBA Opens Doors has provided the inaugural grant as part of its new relationship with Cook Children’s Hospital in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas.  

MBA Opens Doors assists families with critically ill or injured children by providing mortgage or rental assistance grants to help them keep their homes in the face of significant medical expenses.  Since its founding in 2011, MBA Opens Doors has provided assistance to over 450 families.

The grant was awarded to the family of Jeremiah, age 3, who lives in Fort Worth with his parents and two young siblings. 

He is currently undergoing chemotherapy. The family has struggled financially since Jeremiah’s diagnosis due to a significant loss of income and increased expenses.

"I want to thank Dave and the entire team at the Colonial Family of Companies for connecting the good people at Cook Children’s Hospital with the Opens Doors Foundation." said Debra Still, CMB, Chairman of the MBA Opens Doors Foundation and President & CEO of Pulte Mortgage.

“From reading the grant applications each month, I have seen how lives are touched by Opens Doors. We are honored to have the chance to help Jeremiah’s family and look forward to helping out many others.”
