A Helping Hand

Andrea was a young single mother living in a small apartment determined to provide a better home for her two quickly growing children. When she called NeighborWorks® Southern Mass she found out about our First Time Homebuyer Education course. She received her certificate and learned that she was eligible to apply for Down-Payment and Closing Cost Assistance. She qualified for over $9,000 in assistance and was able to purchase a home for her family. "My kids were so excited to move into their new home and I was so proud to accomplish this thanks to a helping hand from NeighborWorks® Southern Mass."
