Home Ownership Dreams Come True at Momentum

Posted by Carolyn Davis on September 21, 2015 in Get Involved, Money Management




















“Many people are first drawn to the Owen Hart Home Owners program because of the opportunity to earn matched savings, which can result in participants having $14,400 for their down payment when combined with their own contributions,” says Dean, “But the core purpose of the program is to equip participants with the tools to better move into home ownership, and make informed choices in regards to the market, the use of housing professionals, and their personal money situations. We want our participants to make decisions that are right for them.”

Over the years Momentum has supported more than 130 families to move into their own homes and achieve a solid foundation toward a sustainable livelihood.  The program couldn’t operate without its financial supporters—especially Martha Hart of the Owen Hart Foundation! She and her team works year-round to raise funds for this work.

Last night was the final class for our most recent Owen Hart Home Owners program. OHHO is a special matched savings program for Fair Gains Graduates, who are ready to take their commitment to saving to the next level, and pursue the goal of home ownership. Putting aside enough money for a down payment requires serious discipline, especially for people living on lower incomes. Dean Estrella, the program facilitator, works with people so that saving for a home can become a reality. In fact, Dean is often part of a participant’s journey for several years as they learn savings habits, budgeting skills, and special knowledge to support a savvy home buying decision.
