Where do you go to feel safe? When you are tired? At the end of a long day? To be with family and friends? Most of us would likely say " HOME". Home is where we reflect, reconnect and feel settled. But what if your safe place is threatened? A life change, a job loss, divorce, death of a loved one, any one of these can change your living environment quickly. Many families live one paycheck at a time, and try as they might, circumstances take them towards home foreclosure. Many do not live paycheck to paycheck but encounter an unexpected hardship that changes their lives drastically.
The Housing Partnership provides foreclosure preservation services. There is minimal funding for this program, however, the need for services is great. We will not stop helping our local commuities in Northern New Jersey, but we need funding to keep the program afloat. Our counseling services are free but the program incurs costs.
In 2018, 72 homes were saved from foreclosure through our program. We had over 165 new clients last year and the numbers are not decreasing. We need your help to fill the gap and keep hardworking families in their safe places.
Our mission is, "Strengthening communities by creating lasting and resposnible home ownership through education and financial coaching".
While we don't build or repair homes we build strength, confidence, pride and stability in neighborhoods and school districts by making certain families can stay in the place they have worked hardest to purchase. It's an investment in our community. And in yours.
