What is credit score?Credit score is a numerical representation of your past credit behavior which is used by lenders to determine whether they will give you a loan and if so, what interest rates you will receive. Current debts, number of active loans, bill payment, available credit and history of foreclosures/bankruptcy can all impact credit score, which normally ranges from 300-850.

Happy MLK Day!Today we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. who championed the civil rights movement. It is important to recognize how far we have come as a society since then and pay our respects to people who had the courage to stand up for what’s right. We hope everyone has had a wonderful day celebrating an American hero, maybe some of you even saw the parade here in Houston!#Equality #MLK #BLM #Houston #Holiday #MLKDay ... See MoreSee Less

HOUSING NEWSThe Department of Housing and Urban Development has released their Annual Homelessness Assessment Report for 2022. Since 2020 when the last dataset was taken, the US saw a slight increase of 0.3% in the total number of people experiencing homelessness, many of which were either veterans, disabled, or fleeing abuse. This is still an increase, but due to a shortage of affordable housing, and the economic impacts of the pandemic, it was projected to increase much more. Of the 582,462 people experiencing homelessness, 40% were unsheltered living on the streets or in other uninhabitable locations. This is 3.4% higher than in 2020, and the number of unhoused people with disabilities was an astounding 15.6% higher. Domestic violence (DV) remained the most common reason for homelessness among children with studies showing that in some states over 50% of unhoused parents with children had been driven out by DV directly, and in certain cities, as high as 92% of homeless women have experienced physical or sexual abuse in their lives.There was some good news apart from these negative statistics. Pandemic relief measures and federal investments caused some numbers to drop. Unhoused families with children decreased by 6.1%, unhoused youths decreased by 12%, and unhoused veterans by 11.1%. The Biden administration has also pledged to reduce homelessness by 25% by 2025, but they will face struggles especially in finding solutions to help people of color. While black people make up 12% of the US population, they also account for 37% of all unhoused people. In a similarly troubling statistic, 38% of DV survivors reported becoming homeless immediately after separating from their partners and a similar percentage reported their housing situation as unstable. WOMAN, Inc. will continue fighting in 2023 to develop more affordable housing for special needs populations such as DV survivors, children, and veterans who too often lose their homes to hardship. #AffordableHousing #news #housing #politics #america #LatestNews #affordablehomes #domesticviolenceawareness ...
