Neighborhood Housing Services Oklahoma Announces New Board Member

Neighborhood Housing Services Oklahoma (NHSOKLA) announces the appointment of Le Tran of Oklahoma City to the Board of Directors.

Neighborhood Housing Services Oklahoma is a community development housing agency that is the trusted resource for homeownership education, housing counseling, foreclosure prevention, and access to affordable housing in Oklahoma. NHSOKLA also partners with organizations committed to providing affordable housing to create a positive impact in the local community.

Tran, who currently serves as the Associate Vice President of Mortgage Loan Production for WEOKIE Federal Credit Union, has been actively involved in the mortgage and banking industries for 30 years.  She also serves as the Vice President/Treasurer of Heartland Credit Union Real Estate Network and as a continuing education finance instructor for WEOKIE.

“Our Board of Directors collectively brings decades of experience in areas directly related to the housing industry to address the shortage of affordable housing in our local neighborhoods,” said Roland Chupik, NHSOKLA Executive Director.   “We are delighted Ms. Tran is joining the Board.  She is deeply committed to strengthening our local community by bringing together generations of people through increased access to homeownership.”

“Oklahoma City is evolving and by providing access to affordable housing NHS Oklahoma is helping our community grow,” said Tran.  “My parents, like many others, were immigrants to the U.S.  If they had known or had access to the services that NHS Oklahoma provides, in terms of housing counseling, I think they would have embraced homeownership.”

To address the lack of affordable housing in Oklahoma over the past five years, NHSOKLA has administered nearly $4.5 million in down payment assistance; created more than 450 new homeowners; assisted more than 150 clients in avoiding foreclosure and mortgage default; and educated more than 2,200 clients through its homebuyer education program.
