Driven by our long-standing mission to serve underserved communities; Latino Focus is an industry leader in supporting Hispanic borrowers fulfill their dream of homeownership. In fact, New American Funding is one of the largest privately held retail lenders to Hispanic and Black borrowers.
In 2013, New American Funding formed its own Latino Focus Committee.

By serving our communities, we are able to increase sustainable Hispanic homeownership across America.
The mission of New American Funding's Latino Focus Committee is to identify and address challenges Hispanic consumers face in their pursuit of homeownership. Latino Focus also seeks to raise awareness and help increase homeownership in Hispanic communities through home buyer education, accessibility to credit and mortgage industry career opportunities.

I enjoy being part of Latino Focus because it represents a huge advancement movement for the most important acquisition of their lives- a home. This is imperative because it creates generational wealth within our community. In my market, we understand the importance of Latino Focus; it's key to find a lender who understands and appreciates this niche. Hispanics are the strongest and largest sector across the US in regards to homeownership buying power.
