What’s The Deal? Community Mortgage Movement

Community Mortgage Movement

I’m Andrew Young of Mortgage Wise Financial and Community Mortgage Movement.

What’s the deal with Community Mortgage Movement?

I originally started the Community Mortgage Movement back in 2016 as a passion project. The whole point of the organization is to give back to the community that has helped to make me who I am today.

With every deal that I do through Mortgage Wise Financial, a portion of the proceeds go back into the community. This is done in two different ways: 1) this is my family foundation, which is through the London Community Foundation and is given in the form of an endowment. For those unaware what an endowment is, it is a fund that is a receptacle for gifts given in perpetuity. The capital of the endowment remains untouched, and only the income from the fund is used for ongoing programs and services.

2) The Community Mortgage Movement has chosen six charities, these charities have been screened and vetted by us to make sure that every single dollar that is donated is going towards someone who is in need. We piggy back on the Vital Signs report, which is released by the London Community Foundation and is released every 2 years. This report helps to identify and fund the greatest impact that will help the London, Ontario community.

When we first started in 2016, we were very successful and were able to give back $10,000 to charities within the London, Ontario community. In 2017, we were able to give back $15,000 and are goal for this year is to give back $20-25,000.

Community Mortgage Movement’s Charity Highlight: Merrymount


I’d like to start to share with my followers some of the charities that myself and Community Mortgage Movement are involved with.One of the charities I work with is Merrymount.

Merrymount is a family support and crisis centre and their focus is on helping children by supporting their families in a time of crisis or transition. The ultimate goal of this charity is to provide supports and services so that families can stay together. Believe or not, it is the only centre of its kind in Canada!


Merrymount has been providing programs and services to London’s families and children for 142 years. Merrymount Children’s Centre was established back in 1874 as the Protestant Home for Orphans, Aged and Friendless. When the child welfare system took responsibility for the wardship of orphans in the 1890s, the Home began to shift its focus on residential care for children of families in crisis or transition. A new home was built as a Centennial project in 1967 and when the centre opened, the name Merrymount was adopted to reflect its non-denominational approach. The facility is located on 1064 Colborne Street and was built back in 1991.

They help to service over 8,000 families each year within the London, St. Thomas and Woodstock area. Some of the services that they offer include: round-the-clock programs for safer overnight care, education and prevention programs for adults and children, Is a partner in the City of London’s Social Services Network and London’s Child and Youth Network and is often the first place a family in crisis is referred.


Merrymount also provides families with building on their own strengths, provides resources, counselling, emergency child care and support and navigation of difficult life circumstances through their 8 different programs: Family and Child Support Program, Crisis Residential/Respite Program, Parenting Groups, Children’s Groups, Supervised Access, All Kids Belong, The Ontario Early Years Centre and the Community Outreach Program
