A Message from our President and Director
Fifteen years can seem like a long time or like a blink of the eye. Fifteen years ago, when Home, Inc. was founded, it felt like we had to struggle for every step forward, every property purchased, every house built, and every homeowner found.
Today, Home, Inc. is well established with clear processes and paths for affordable housing expansion. Board members and volunteers still have to work hard and there are still struggles, but we succeed more often. Staff has expanded and become very professional with a reputation of excellence with state and federal organizations.
Due to a challenging lending market, Home, Inc. has taken on the responsibility of preparing families to become homeowners. Even with additional staff, we are still stretched to the limit. Some things never change for a small non-profit.
Having a long involvement with Home, Inc. I can say that it is incredibly rewarding to be a part of a vibrant agency making our community a better, more stable place to live. Home, Inc. provides lasting positive change for families it touches. To see the joy on the faces of the adults and the children is what makes me love Home, Inc. Our board is so fortunate to have the privilege of supporting and working for this great cause.
Thank you to all of our members, partners, and volunteers for all of the work you do in so many ways to make this worthy mission possible.
