NWWPA has helped thousands of individuals and families become homeowners over the past 50 years. Some of these homeowners share their thoughts below about their experience working with us.
“I would recommend that everyone attend the homeownership workshop before you think you are ready to buy a home, because the process really begins before then. It is really intimidating and you don’t know who you can trust. So having a full group of people that you can go to and show your contracts, who will help you negotiate, who will tell you whether something is a good deal or if someone is trying to take advantage of you, is so valuable in the homebuying process because you always have someone you can go back to that you can trust. A support network, really.”
“I really wanted my own space; something that I could keep in my family, something that I could pass down to my children someday. Since becoming a homeowner, I feel much more stable. I feel like I’m learning what it means to be responsible, to own something, and to build a legacy.”
“NeighborWorks is an angel in disguise. They are really geared toward helping people get from that first level financially to their biggest goal.”
“I think NeighborWorks is an awesome resource for our community. I don’t think enough people know about it, because a lot more people could be helped out by what they do… I really appreciate them being there for me, and I know I’ve already turned other friends onto buying a house, and I plan on telling other friends as they get ready for homeownership.”
“Homeownership is an accomplishment for me, because I’m the first person to own a home within my family, so it’s stability for my daughter. It’s something that we’re building.”
“This is my first time owning a home. I’m 35, and it was the time to think about homeownership at this stage of my life. Now I’m about to own my own home. I still can’t believe it’s happening. It’s amazing that I was born and raised in Hazelwood and now I get to have my own house here.”
