Foote Capital receives FHA Direct approval
Carlisle-based Foote Capital Mortgage Company announced it has been approved for participation as a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Direct Endorsement Lender.
Commonly referred to as “Full Eagle,” the endorsement status gives Foote Capital the authority to underwrite and approve FHA loans in-house with its own staff of underwriters, as opposed to relying upon third-party underwriters. Foote Capital has previously been underwriting other loan types in-house.
“Our Direct Endorsement designation has allowed us to consolidate our operations into a single business model and streamline the loan process for our clients and our team,” said Shaun Foote, President of Foote Capital Mortgage Company. “Our focus now is on expanding our geographic footprint and the launch of our financial institutions group.”

Taste of Chamber beneficiaries announced
The West Shore Chamber of Commerce will host its Taste of the Chamber event April 11 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. p.m. at Bobby Rahal Toyota on the Carlisle Pike.
The event offers samples of the signature dishes of the chamber’s restaurant, catering and food service members. In December, the Chambers Women in Business Roundtable Committee selected two local member nonprofits to benefit from a portion of the event proceeds — Beauty After Bruises and Diakon Child, Family & Community Ministries.
Beauty After Bruises is dedicated to providing survivors of childhood trauma with access to, and funding for, therapeutic and inpatient care; while creating professional and public awareness for Complex PTSD.
Diakon Child, Family & Community Ministries traces its roots to the late 1800s when two homes for children — then called orphanages — were established in central and eastern Pennsylvania. Today, Diakon Child, Family & Community Ministries continues that legacy of care and concern through a wide range of services for children, youths, families, adult individuals and communities as a whole.
