Homeownership is the single most viable means for families and individuals to build wealth and self-sufficiency. Purchasing a home helps families to build savings and reap the benefit of home equity. Paying for college, building a retirement nest egg, or financial cushion in the event of job loss, spousal death or other life altering misfortune becomes more accessible when you are a homeowner.

Healthy communities are built on sustainable homeownership. Homeowners are more likely to vote, volunteer and get involved in their communities. Sustainable, affordable housing benefits everyone, but barriers to sustainable housing today are so much more difficult to overcome than they were just a few decades ago.

Rapidly rising housing costs, increasingly complex mortgage options, predatory lending practices and a basic lack of financial literacy can all lead to a sense of despair. To many, the overwhelming feeling that the American Dream of owning and staying in your home is simply out of reach.

Education, counseling and creative financial coaching programs can help first time home buyers, homeowners in crisis and those who struggle financially to make ends meet. Long recognized as a stabilizing force within communities and households, owning a home doesn’t have to be out of reach in our community.  H.O.M.E. DuPage can help.
