Christina Diaz-Malone is Vice President of Housing and Community Outreach. She engages with national and local organizations to encourage, promote, and support housing and homeownership for low- to moderate-income, minority, and under-served communities. Diaz-Malone has spent nearly 30 years in mortgage banking and community development. Before joining Freddie Mac, she worked in Fannie Mae's National Housing Impact Division following a career with a national mortgage insurer. She has served in such organizations as the Association of Professional Mortgage Women, NeighborWorks America, MANA, and the Maryland Governor’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs.
Since Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeast, Freddie Mac has been continuously providing relief and support to borrowers and communities across the affected region.
After the storm hit, Freddie Mac staff began – and continue – to train housing counselors on disaster relief options for borrowers and work directly with hundreds of families at local borrower outreach events. Our outreach teams have mobilized and connected with non-profit organizations and federal, state, and local government task forces and commissions to expedite assistance and provide critical resources, including the short-term use of suitable REO homes as rental housing.
This Memorial Day, in communities across the country, we honor the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces for their service and sacrifice. It's a day of remembrance, and an opportunity to recognize those who have responded to the nation’s call to serve and fight for our safety and freedom.
Here at home, Freddie Mac employees are committed to our service men and women and understand that housing can be a significant issue for military families who frequently move, or for disabled veterans returning home. We work closely with our partners and the military to better serve these individuals and their families with the unique challenges they may face.
