    “If it wasn’t for the home-ownership program, I wouldn’t own my home today. I’d been renting for 8 years and desperately wanted a way out of the cycle of flushing money down the toilet. The only way to build wealth for someone in my situation—not being able to save money each month-was to own. Building equity would be my “piggy bank” . The Family Self Sufficiency program and down payment assistance programs provided the education and resources to dig deep and accomplish my goal.”
