Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union’s Jeff Wright honored by MassHousing

LOWELL, MA (December 15, 2017) — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union’s Senior Loan Officer, Jeff Wright, was recently recognized by MassHousing for his achievements in helping Massachusetts residents successfully find their way to the American Dream.

Wright received a Bronze Medal for his hard work in guiding and educating borrowers who used the MassHousing program through Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union in fiscal year 2017.

MassHousing works with more than 150 financial partners in Massachusetts to provide affordable homeownership opportunities to thousands of families each year. The agency lends funds to low and moderate-income homebuyers and to developers who build affordable rental housing. In 2017, a total of 2,700 people took advantage of MassHousing’s lending services, 78% of which are first time homebuyers.

“The first time homebuyer has always been a niche of mine,” said Wright. “MassHousing is a great program and I’m glad we offer it to our members and the community.”

“Each day at Jeanne D’Arc, we work to make affordable financial opportunities available to our members so they can achieve their dreams,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “Working with partners like MassHousing allows us to do this. We are very proud of Jeff for his hard work and dedication to our mission,” he added.

Wright, along with 39 others, are featured as the Top MassHousing Loan Originators on the agency’s website.

“The exceptional efforts of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union and Jeff to provide mortgage financing is reflected by the thousands of households who now own their piece of the American Dream,” said Lisa Fiandaca, Director of Home Ownership Production at MassHousing, in a written statement.
