FAMILY PARTNERSHIP

“Knowing that hard work and my own two hands have helped
build this home gives me a feeling that I can do anything.”

Long-Term Partnership

We begin by partnering with low-income families who work hard to develop the skills needed to be successful homeowners. If a family applies for a home and is declined, we help them develop a plan to overcome their obstacles and earn approval on a future application.

Before buying their home with an interest-free mortgage, homebuyer families contribute 300-500 sweat equity hours by assisting with construction and learning home maintenance and financial management skills.

When a family moves into their home, we don’t walk away. We encourage long-term relationships with homebuyers, walking alongside them all the way through their last mortgage payment. This is essential as we empower homebuyers to create a better life for themselves and their families.
