Maria Reynosa and her 12-year-old daughter, Carmen, now have the house they desperately needed thanks to Capital One Home Loans and Habitat for Humanity of South Collin County. The home dedication took place March 24, and Capital One made a $75,000 commitment to their “Home Loans Has a Heart” program in the construction of the home.
Through the “Home Loans Has a Heart” program, Capital One Home Loans partnered with Habitat for Humanity of South Collin County to build new homes in communities where Capital One Home Loans has regional operations. It was imperative that Maria and her daughter relocate from their apartment in McKinney to Plano in order for Carmen to attend the Plano ISD Deaf Education program.
Working 400 volunteer hours, the Reynosa family helped build the home along with approximately 300 Capital One associates who volunteered about 1,800 hours. Maria is purchasing her house on a 0% interest mortgage through Habitat.
“Home Loans Has Heart” was created in 2013 to encourage Capitol One Home Loans associates to make a significant impact in their communities. The program’s first place to launch a home build was in Plano in 2013.
