She is responsible for driving corporate social responsibility initiatives, community outreach, and environmental social governance programs at Mr. Cooper. During her time as VP of Corporate Social Responsibility, Toniqua has elevated engagement within the company and taken on new directives in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. She shares her knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion at industry events to encourage others to join in the efforts. Her department has helped with the Homeowner Assistance Funds to assist borrowers after the pandemic. To meet Toniqua Green, is to know she has a passion to help people in their distress. She is known for her tenacious ability to get things done!" What This Nomination Means to Her "I am honored to be nominated for the 2022 Women in Housing Corporate Social Responsibility Award. It is a testament to the great things we are doing at Mr. Cooper Group. Leading the Corporate Social Responsibility team for Mr. Cooper Group was the career path I never knew I needed. I enjoy being able to partner with housing advocates, state housing agencies, and federal housing associations to provide mortgage assistance to homeowners in need, manage our outreach efforts, government- sponsored initiatives, strategic planning of foreclosure prevention, and new homeowner efforts in low- to moderate-income markets and underserved communities. I love that my team and I are able to live out Mr. Cooper's vision of keeping the dream of homeownership alive. Every day we are looking for ways to help our homeowners and better our communities." What Others Are Saying "When it comes to philanthropic events, Dana is the go-to person at Caliber to help organize, plan, and participate. She is a key driver in offering continued support to Caliber's favorite nonprofits, like Operation Homefront, Patriot Paws, and Gatehouse Women's Shelter. As a veteran herself, she has played an especially huge part in Caliber's military-related partnerships and events. Last year, Dana led efforts to provide $250 gift cards to military highschoolers so that they could purchase new clothes and supplies for school, along with over 80 stocked backpacks that she personally handed out on-base with almost $10,000 worth of supplies." What This Nomination Means to Her "I'm honored to be nominated for this award, but the work I get to do and the opportunity that I've been given to use my skills, talents, and resources to serve the community is truly its own reward. This nomination has helped me to reflect upon the opportunities I've had and the impact I've made in improving the lives of veterans and their families within our communities. This nomination means more to me than recognition—it means that we, as a society, are bringing awareness, accountability, and commitment to various issues impacting the communities in which we live and work." What Others Are Saying "Carrie Tackett started her career in 2006 at ServiceLink and joined Safeguard Properties in 2010 as an REO Supervisor.

It means I am a part of how we successfully build employee engagement and sustainable partnerships through activities such as volunteering, financial contributions, community service, eco- friendly practices, and many creative activities by which Safeguard gives back to our nation's communities. Partnerships with VFSAC and Military Warriors Support Foundation allow us to directly impact housing opportunities for our nation's military heroes.
