For more than four years, Debra Macaluso has felt honored to help people achieve their home ownership dreams in her role as Mortgage Loan Officer at Summit Funding.

“I heard a saying a long time ago that I hope to put into practice each day: ‘Be the wind in someone’s sail,’” says Debra.

To that end, Debra does more than help people secure a home through mortgage loans—she also does it through her giving and volunteerism. Debra supports Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West and is a member of its WATCH program (Women Accepting the Challenge of Housing). In 2019 alone, its members donated $44,000 towards the building of safe, affordable housing.
