Military Housing Specialist Certification Program

I just completed the Military Housing Specialist Certification Program offered through USA Cares to better serve our Veterans and military families with their home finance needs.

USA Cares created the Certified Military Housing Specialist Program and designation to provide lenders and housing professionals with a comprehensive overview of the military including: an understanding of the military lifestyle, rank and language, pay and allowance categories of the military compensation system, disability and retirement benefits, special situations and their impact on entitlements, foreclosure prevention and housing assistance resources and various regulations which protect service members.

 “A VETERAN: Whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve, is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America,’ for an amount of: up to and including my life.”

 USA Cares is a nationally recognized nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that helps post 9/11 military families bear the burdens of service with financial and advocacy support through grants, not loans. Its mission: To help with basic needs during financial crisis, to assist combat injured Veterans and their families and to prevent private military home foreclosures and evictions. USA Cares is continuing to assist military, veterans and their families who find themselves facing foreclosure with grants and other assistance including opening the doors to other options.

Since it’s founding in 2003, USA Cares has provided monetary and advocacy support to veterans and military families who have fallen between the cracks of the government support structure. We serve all branches, components and ranks, while protecting the privacy and dignity of every family. No fees are ever charged, and no repayments are ever requested.

“We believe any program that will help service members deserves our full support. This program should result in more qualified military and veteran borrowers getting into affordable homes. They will be assisted by Realtors looking for lenders participating in our program and, ultimately, by more knowledgeable lenders who are acutely aware of those unique circumstances brought about by military service.”            -Bill Nelson, USA Cares Executive Director

USA Cares believes that all individuals who provide mortgage origination services to service members and their families should have a clear understanding of how to work with military borrowers. Mortgage professionals who possess the knowledge and skills to assist this special niche can help build communities across the nation with mortgages that are affordable and sustainable, keeping neighborhoods lively and home values stable.
