Savings Program helps young couple get new home
It is always great to be a part of the great work Habitat for Humanity does in the community. Last week, Habitat for Humanity of Mid-Yellowstone Valley welcomed their 60th new homeowners to their new house in Laurel, MT. Caity and Justin Carrier were referred to us by Habitat for Humanity to take part in our Assets for Independence (AFI) savings program The program the Carriers were in provided a 3 to 1 match up to their own contribution of $1000, resulting in a total of $4000 towards their down payment. The program requires that participants attend regular savings and budgeting classes while saving their own money in order to receive the matching funds.
We look forward to many more new homeowners realizing their dream with the help of Habitat for Humanity and HRDC Community Action Agency.
