Homebuying and homeownership are a vital part of the American dream. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, some of the most prevalent issues families’ face that deters them from buying a home is:
Circle of Love Community Development Corporation provides the services necessary to assist potential homeowners so that families can overcome obstacles and realize the American Dream. We help people understand how to prepare to buy a home.
Homeownership requires a planned, disciplined course of financial action. Teaching and reinforcing the basic lessons of financial stewardship develops necessary tools for successfully reaching one’s goals.
The Bible says that, “without a vision the people parish,” this is so true, without a planned (written) course of action and perseverance the dream/vision of obtaining a home seems far fetched and unattainable so we never pursue our dreams/visions and just give up.
I believe that dreams are fueled by faith and because Circle of Love CDC inspires that faith we create fertile ground for dreams to grow.
