Meet Alex and Angela, a husband and wife duo with a lot perseverance in achieving goals. Since their two children were born, homeownership has been among these goals, but the thrifty couple knew they would have save. They lived in a tiny apartment for three years before starting to look for a home. When the time came, they never settled for a home outside their means, even when the search became grueling. “Our realtor had shown us dozens of houses, and we’d just about given up,” says Angela. That was, until she attended a self-help housing seminar.
Justin and Mandy were a young family just starting out at the time they found the Self-Help Housing program. Like most young couples, they wanted a home where they could settle down and start building memories. They worked for eight years to get into a home, but hadn’t been able to do so in any other way.
