Ocwen is widely recognized in industry and community advocacy group circles as a leader in foreclosure prevention, collaborating with community groups and grass roots organizations. Ocwen works closely with such organizations as The National Fair Housing Alliance; the National Training and Information Center; Project to End Predatory & Deceptive Real Estate Practices at the Community Law Center; the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group; and the National Association of Neighborhoods.
Ocwen has taken a number of steps that NFHA has encouraged and supported. Those steps include hosting, sponsoring and participating in foreclosure prevention forums and workshops, making the loss mitigation process more transparent to consumers, participating in the HOPE NOW Alliance, undertaking fair lending training, entering into partnerships with non-profit consumer advocacy and civil rights groups to promote fair lending and homeownership preservation, supporting fair lending efforts at the national and local levels and soliciting consumer advocacy and civil rights groups to participate in joint loss mitigation and homeownership preservation efforts. Ocwen is one of the few companies that participated as a sponsor and supporter of each phase of NFHA's anti-predatory lending educational media campaign.

With Ocwen's support, the Housing Center is more equipped and is better able to meet the demand of providing high quality housing counseling to borrowers in distress.

Empowering & Strengthening Ohio’s People (ESOP) is proud of our partnership with Ocwen. Dating back nearly six years, we have worked together to keep hundreds of families in their homes around the state of Ohio. What really strikes me about Ocwen is that from the top down they have a culture of really wanting to assist homeowners and are not afraid to try new strategies to work with their customers. While ESOP has partnerships with numerous lenders and servicers, what makes our relationship with Ocwen so unique is they reached out to us to help our community.
