Peace of Mind Housing Fund

Learn More

When you partner with First Class Mortgage, you’re helping bring a good night’s sleep to local families. 

More than a decade ago, First Class Mortgage collaborated with CROSS Services to create the Peace of Mind Fund, which provides beds and other financial support to local families in transition. First Class Mortgage is thrilled to match up to $15,000 every year.  Since the inception of the program, we have been able to match over $150,000 and over $300,000 raised.  

The Peace of Mind Fund aids local residents with housing expenses who are going through a financial loss due to unforeseen health, employment, or family hardship. Part of the funds donated also goes to the Peaceful Dreams Program which helps provide bed frames, mattresses, quilted bedding, and bedtime stories to local children who don’t have a bed and are sleeping on the floor.
