Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. employees volunteered a full day's work and resources to build a home for a low-income family. Efforts on the part of organizations such as NTC have contributed to a decrease in the number of homeless in the State of Florida.
Though most residents are unaware, Florida currently has the third largest homeless community in the nation, totaling some 50,000 individuals and families, and constituting 6% of the state's population. Community members have decided to take a stand and change conditions in this arena by supporting organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. As a result of these efforts, Florida has seen the largest decrease in homelessness in the country since 2012, by helping 8,000 people to get their own homes. Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC), a leading research and document-processing provider for the mortgage and financial industry, is one community member that decided to get involved with the initiative to decrease the number of people living on Florida streets. In May, several staff members of NTC volunteered a full day's work to build a home for a family that would not have been able to afford the home otherwise.
