"There is nothing you can't do tomorrow, no matter where you were yesterday"
Individual "in need" enrolls in our "out-patient" program
Day 1: Attends an orientation class (jobs class). This where we start the process of providing the individual a "NEW START IN LIFE". We "EMPOWER" individuals to become the person God intended them to be. It doesn't matter who you were yesterday, with God's grace and our guidance, tomorrow you could be whoever and whatever you want. In our jobs class, we identify the areas we need to assist; addiction, warrants, drivers license, family reunification, employment, stability, etc. The Individual is given homework; research/soul searching. We have many people who would like our services, but not all are willing to do the work! We start the credit repair process. It could take some individuals 12 months to become credit worthy for home ownership.
Day 30: Arrange interim employment; construction, telemarketing, barista, etc. We evaluate work ethic and motivation to progress. When you hire individuals off the street, 5 of 10 last 12 months, 7 out of 10 last 12 months.
Day 90: Stabilize housing, begin job training for career employment, address any ongoing issues with obtaining a drivers' license, explore vocational rehab options. When the government program pays Homeless2Homeownership $8,000 per 5 months. Our individuals repay over $30,000 in taxes and savings to the community. Over the next 3 years: $2,400 in employment taxes, $3,000 in food stamp savings, $1,200 in savings in Obama Care, $4,300 in emergency room visits. TOTAL SAVINGS PER YEAR = $11,900. Shouldn't all government programs provide this kind of return?
Day 180: The individual should have stable employment, a bank account, a vehicle, CHARACTER & SELF ESTEEM. Then, we start the home ownership process.
Day 210-365: The individual will have the opportunity to have full time employment, reliable transportation, a family or support group, and benefits.
End of Program: "HOME OWNERSHIP" We work with a lender who, upon graduation, will offer a 97% conventional 1st mortgage.
We have purchased hundreds distressed properties and rehabbed them into affordable homes for our program participants for over 14 years. We have been managing the complete rehab, while simultaneously rehabilitating lives. Helping people become successful in their everyday life and acquiring a family home is our passion. We have helped people from many different walks of life and have offered a "hand-up" regardless of their rocky past.
To date we have taken 0 money from city, state, or federal government.
Homeless 2 Homeownership assists the public through life rehabilitation programs. Our services aim to clear a path of success for our participants. This include assistance with legal issues, family reunification, resume building, job training, job placement, assistance overcoming drug & alcohol abuse, transportation, credit repair, and home ownership. The main objective is to help people overcome obstacles, whether it may be a lack of work history or a criminal record, to help them become employed, tax-paying citizens. Homeless to Homeownership will help along the way. Once our program participants retain steady employment and build their credit, we will help with them purchase one of our rehabilitated homes. We may assist with the down payment and refer a lender who will offer them a 97% conventional mortgage, if they meet the minimum requirements.
