Community Connections receives $2,500 grant

Posted: Thursday, October 22, 2015

Pathfinder Community Connections NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center is pleased to announce the receipt of a $2,500 grant from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation. The objective of the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation’s Homeownership Grant Program is to provide financial resources to local non-profit housing organizations to create sustainable homeownership opportunities for low-to-moderate-income people.

Pathfinder Community Connections, the community development and housing division of Pathfinder Services, will use the grant funds toward Homebuyer Education Programs and Financial Counseling as well as their “Move into Homeownership” program. The “Move into Homeownership” program allows those individuals and families who are not quite mortgage eligible to move into a Pathfinder Community Connections rehabilitated home and eventually attain ownership of that home.

“We are very appreciative of the generosity of the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation and their support of our mission to assist families and strengthen communities through homeownership,” stated Jan Baumgartner, director of Pathfinder Community Connections. “Gaining knowledge of the home buying process helps families become successful homeowners and grant funds like that from Wells Fargo Housing Foundation allow us to help more families,” Baumgartner concluded.

Pathfinder Community Connections NeighborWorks HomeOwnership Center has helped over 2,300 families achieve their dream of homeownership. The division guides potential home buyers through the entire process of pre-purchase education, financial fitness, homebuyer education, loan packaging and closing, post-purchase counseling and foreclosure prevention if needed, free tax preparation, individual development accounts and an auto buying program.
