Habitat Recipient and IDA Participant - Ormsbee   June is Homeownership Month

Owning a home is almost everyone's dream.  It's an investment.  It's an asset. It's investing in yourself and your family. Mr. Ormsbee had that dream; to have a safe environment for his family.  Hear his story.

It just makes more sense to invest in yourself than to pay a landlord.  Attend Homebuyer Education at one of our 3 offices to learn the basics of the home buying process.
