Her first home

Building a home

Julia is a single parent who rented and wanted to own a home of her own. In August 2007, Julia applied for down-payment assistance through Lifeline’s First Time Homebuyers Program and completed the Homebuyers Counseling Classes offered by Lifeline in conjunction with several local housing-related professionals.

“Without the help Lifeline provided, I couldn’t have bought my new home,” said Julia. “The classes were great and provided tools so that I know how to do things on my own. I learned a lot in the classes.”

In October 2007, Julia and her family moved into their new home and now own a stake in their community.
