About Framework

Homeownership is for Everyone

Framework is a for-profit social enterprise. We believe that homeownership is a means of creating possibility, long-term security, and greater financial independence. By widening access and closing knowledge gaps, we're helping people understand the process — every nuance, every expectation, every pathway.

With reliable information about what goes into homeownership, what comes out is all the better: More confident homebuyers, more successful homeowners, and stronger communities for generations to come. So yes, we believe homeownership is for everyone — everyone who wishes to pursue it.

Learn along with us. We're so happy you're here!

We started Framework with the belief that homebuyers who educate themselves about the process are more successful homeowners in the long run. Omar Esposito, CEO & President

Our Story

Framework was founded in 2012 by two nonprofit leaders in homeownership – Housing Partnership Network and Minnesota Homeownership Center – both HUD-approved housing counseling intermediaries.

In 2012 we observed that while both the market and the homebuyers within it had changed, the way people approached buying (and owning) a home had not. Plus, the research was clear: informed homebuyers are more likely to be confident, successful homeowners.

And so we dedicated ourselves to making smart homeownership the new norm nationwide by leveraging technology to reach a new generation of homebuyers and homeowners. We’re doing this with a superior curriculum, the latest technology, dedication to our customers, and innovative relationships with lenders, brokers, and a network of nonprofit partners. To date, we’ve helped over 1.5M+ homebuyers purchase their first homes.

Equity is Our Call to Action

It’s always been our mission to acknowledge and confront structural and persistent barriers of systemic racism that historically kept people of color from the benefits of homeownership.

We continually and actively examine how we as an organization can do our part to call out and correct systemic racial injustice, and share our thoughts, plans, and actions to keep the momentum toward effecting real, lasting change.
