Habitat for Humanity currently uses a SQL database that is their primary loan servicing software, which processes loan applications and also services the loan post-closing. Another Habitat affiliate, Our Towns Habitat, is in need of support. It has been decided that Habitat Charlotte will service their portfolio of loans.
This requires a data migration from Our Towns database to Charlotte Habitat and the establishing of a new database just for this portfolio. Habitat Charlotte has two databases, one for each of their major programs, and this new database will mirror them. This project also requires setting up all the reports they need to service the loan.
In the scope of this project is duplicating the database for the purpose of importing about 250 new loan files from the current loan servicer, which is a servicing company called AmeriNat. Also included is customizing existing reports to reflect Habitat’s new needs.
This project will be serving both Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte and Our Towns Charlotte.
Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte was founded in 1983 by seven local churches, and has remained a top Habitat for Humanity affiliate since its establishment. Through faith, innovation and passion, and thanks to the support of countless community partners, volunteers, donors and advocates, Habitat Charlotte has made a significant impact in Charlotte since its founding.
Our Towns Habitat is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. We believe that everyone deserves decent, affordable housing. The cause of affordable housing is vital to strong families and communities because it affects so many aspects of our lives—including health, education and financial stability. Our Towns promotes affordable housing in the Lake Norman and Statesville area through two main programs—new homeownership and critical repairs. Our new homeownership program provides low income families, who might not otherwise be able to buy a home, a path to homeownership with an affordable mortgage.
