IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

First Community Mortgage is honored to partner with Goodwill on helping change lives, promoting sustainable homeownership and preparing Goodwill’s employees, clients and customers for this important process.

TOGETHER WE ARE CHANGING LIVES

There are many requirements for home ownership and it all starts with gainful employment. That is why First Community Mortgage launched the Multicultural Lending Initiative and has partnered with Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennesse to offer Lunch and Learn Sessions to help others find a pathway to home ownership. These sessions are designed to guide future homeowners with a personalized orientation of the home buying process. Taught by dedicated professionals these sessions will help future home-buyers answer any questions pertaining to home buying, financing, and the application process.

How your donations create change

When you donate things like clothes, furniture and toys to Goodwill, you help provide jobs and free job training services for thousands of Tennesseans.

First, each item is handled by a donation attendant. Nine out of 10 of Goodwill’s employees come to the nonprofit for assistance with barriers to employment, such as disabilities or a lack of skills. The journey continues with each piece being processed by Goodwill employees for resale. Donated items are racked and hung and sent out onto the floor of our retail stores for resale.

Once each item sells, with the help of our retail staff, the revenue, supports Goodwill’s community-based employment and training programs. Thanks to you, these programs provide free classes and on-the-job training every year for thousands of individuals in our communities facing barriers to employment

The bottom line? When you donate, your donations become an investment in the futures of the thousands of individuals.
