Homespire Mortgage has named Shondra B. Jenkins to its team as director of philanthropy and community engagement, to further develop and enhance the firm’s corporate social responsibility programs and outreach.
Jenkins comes to Homespire with nearly 20 years of experience designing, implementing and measuring corporate social responsibility programs.

In her new role, Jenkins will work to strengthen and further develop Homespire Mortgage’s “Inspired to Impact” social responsibility program. This initiative is focused on creating meaningful change in the communities the company serves by helping to eradicate homelessness and to increase homeownership for veterans through charitable contributions, philanthropic partnerships and employee volunteerism.
“Shondra's passion and proven track record for creating and fostering innovative partnerships are a perfect match for Homespire's culture and vision,” said Todd Sheinin, chief operating officer for Homespire Mortgage. “As active partners in all our communities, our goal is to serve, support and enrich these local areas.
