SAN DIEGO--The Mortgage Bankers Association presented Jim and Judy Deitch and the Deitch Family Foundation with the MBA Opens Doors Foundation Community Champion Award.   

The award recognizes those who have dedicated significant time and effort to advance the foundation's mission to enable families with a critically ill or injured child to keep their home, even in the face of significant medical bills.  

"Mr. and Mrs. Deitch have done so much for the Foundation," said Debra Still, CMB, chairman of the MBA Opens Doors Foundation and President & CEO of Pulte Mortgage. "Their charitable giving includes a large personal donation, but it has gone far beyond that. As it turns out, the Deitch family also has ties to the music industry, which they have used creatively to give from the heart. Working with a talented singer/songwriter, Jim and Judy have produced and underwritten a beautiful song, 'Call It Home.' The song is featured in the video which introduces our mission and all proceeds from its sale on iTunes are contributed to Opens Doors."  

Jim Deitch is co-founder and CEO of Teraverde and co-founder of the American Home Bank division of First National Bank of Chester County. Previously, he was a chairman, CEO and co-founder of Keystone National Bank and Keystone Financial Mortgage Corp., as well as president, CEO and director of Parent Federal Savings Bank.  

Opens Doors is currently able to pass 100 percent of donations it receives on to families in need of assistance. The Foundation's ongoing relationship with Washington, D.C.'s Children's National Medical Center and more recently Children's Hospital Colorado, provides partner organizations to help identify potential grant recipients.  

Opens Doors is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible. For more information about the Foundation or to make a donation, visit
