Welcome home!

Open houses are a long-standing tradition in the sale of residential real estate to expose more people to a home for sale. While HOME, Inc. has held open houses for many years, we use them as an opportunity to welcome the new family to their home and show the community what quality affordable housing should look like. 

Last week, we celebrated the completion of our 391st home and the new homeowners, Thanh & Thi with an open house. The new family is from Vietnam and have been in the United States for just two years. Homeownership was always a top priority for them, but with lender restrictions they needed HOME, Inc.’s support and guidance to get homeownership ready. As an organization, we are so proud of all the family was able to overcome and accomplish in only two years in a foreign country without speaking the native language. Congratualtions, Thanh & Thi!

Also, thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to stop by and see the newly constructed home. We were more than pleased with the turnout! It was incredible to see the support of community partners, city representatives, and business leaders. Even more heartwarming, was the representation of neighbors. It was great to see people who live in the neighborhood take notice of the work we did and stop by to celebrate with us. 

During the event, our Homeownership Coordinator collected information on six families interested in using our counseling services to get homebuyer ready. The overwhelmingly positive response to our open house just affirms there is a need for our services. A safe, decent place to live is the cornerstone of a strong community. We are proud to change lives today and for generations to come.
