Pathfinder receives $20,000 from Wells Fargo
Posted: Friday, December 16, 2016
Pathfinder Services has been awarded $20,000 from Wells Fargo Bank for their NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center. The funds will be used to provide Financial Capabilities and Homebuyer Education classes, which support working families in their journey to homeownership and financial stability.
The funds received were from a $15,000 Wells Fargo Housing Foundation grant and a $5,000 Volunteer Service Award grant winner from Wells Fargo. The donations will help Pathfinder Services provide quality financial education for working families in Huntington and Allen Counties. The Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center has been offering this program since 1998.
Wells Fargo Bank has supported Pathfinder Services for more than 15 years. Their partnership has provided much needed funding as well as knowledgeable volunteers.
The Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center coordinator, Justin Barker commented, “We appreciate the continued support of Wells Fargo Bank and their employees. They go above financial support by providing on site instructors to assist with our classes. It’s their commitment to both the program and the families who are involved that really makes a difference.”
Yen Nguyen, home mortgage consultant with Wells Fargo Bank was one of the two Volunteer Service Award recipients in Indiana this year. She donated $5,000 to the Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center, and volunteers to teach the Homebuyer Education courses. “Yen provides real world advice and information to potential homebuyers,” said Barker. “She takes the time to make our classes more informative for the Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center clients.”
