Matic Partners With MBA Opens Doors Foundation

Digital insurance agency Matic, Columbus, Ohio, and the MBA Opens Doors Foundation announced an ongoing partnership to help families with a critically ill or injured child make their mortgage or rent payment.

Through the joint Keeping Hearts in Homes campaign, the Matic Cares Foundation will donate a minimum of $25 to MBA Opens Doors for each new Matic customer referred through a participating partner’s program.

“The last thing a family should worry about while caring for a critically ill child is the possibility of losing their home,” said Matic Insurance Services CEO Ben Madick. “The MBA Opens Doors Foundation provides families financial comfort during incredibly challenging times. We are honored to partner and to make giving more accessible to our network of mortgage lenders.”

Matic’s digital insurance marketplace of 30-plus A-rated carriers is integrated into the mortgage lending and home ownership experience. Keeping Hearts in Homes will be open to Matic’s network of 40 mortgage lenders as well as any new partnership onboarded in 2021.

“Support from companies like Matic make it possible for Opens Doors to help thousands of families with critically ill or injured children stay in their homes while their child is in treatment,” said Debra W. Still, CMB, President and CEO of Pulte Mortgage and Chairman of the MBA Opens Doors Foundation. “Now, and always, The Opens Doors Foundation is grateful to the real estate finance community for helping families that need us, by protecting the importance of ‘home.’”

Deborah Dubois, President of the MBA Opens Doors Foundation, said the pandemic has exacerbated the challenges families with sick children face. “Not only are many families dealing with the financial impact of the pandemic, but many of our most vulnerable families and children are also facing COVID-19 diagnoses themselves,” she said. “It is an extremely difficult time for families with children in treatment, and we are deeply grateful for Matic’s support.”

Since 2012, MBA Opens Doors has provided more than $9.2 million in housing assistance and grants to over 6,400 families in crisis across the U.S. MBA Opens Doors is the mortgage industry’s bridge between professionals and families who need help. Administrative expenses are covered by the MBA so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to families in need.
