Helping Families in Need


Imagine: 

…a mother standing at the bedside of a child undergoing chemotherapy, worried about how she’s going to pay the mortgage when her leave runs out.

…a child alone in a hospital room, surrounded by strangers because his parents cannot afford to take unpaid leave without risking the family’s home.

…the feeling of helplessness a father faces when his child is in the hospital and he can’t be nearby because he has a responsibility to his family to make sure their home is still there when the crisis is over.

the Mortgage Bankers Association and their charity, Open Doors FoundationColonial Savings is proud to partner with the Mortgage Bankers Association and their charity, Open Doors Foundation. The Open Doors Foundation is committed to helping families around the country find comfort in their homes when they are at their most vulnerable. The Foundation’s Mortgage Grant Assistance Initiative provides grants to parents and guardians with critically ill or injured children, allowing them to take unpaid leave from work and spend precious time together without jeopardizing their homes. Much like the Mortgage Assistance Initiative, the Rental Grant Assistance Initiative helps families focus on the health of their child instead of their next rent payment. The Foundation began awarding housing assistance grants to qualified families in late 2012. To date in 2016, the Foundation has raised over $1.1 million in pledges and commitments to help families keep their homes.

Recently, Colonial was pleased to donate $25,000 to this cause in July 2016 to assist a family with a child hospitalized at Fort Worth’s Cook Children’s Medical Center. But donations are not limited to Fort Worth. The Foundation is helping families across the country in partnership with local and regional health care providers.
