Home Ownership Made Easy (H.O.M.E.)
H.O.M.E., an affiliate of the Westside Regional Center, has committed
itself to an urgent mission: purchasing and maintaining apartments, condos,
and houses for low-income adults with developmental disabilities.
What Are the Benefits of H.O.M.E.'s efforts?
We strive to acquire housing that is stable, affordable, and safe:
- Stable so that people with developmental disabilities can use the
stability and responsibilities of a home to reach their full potential.
- Affordable so that people with developmental disabilities can have
the dignity of supporting themselves.
- Safe so that people with developmental disabilities can experience
their right to feel secure in their homes.
HomeChoice is a H.O.M.E. project with Fannie Mae and other housing and
financial institutions, that will offer adults with developmental disabilities
and low-income families with a disabled child the opportunity to own their
homes. This program serves as a one-stop center to address all home ownership
issues, including finding an appropriate home and arranging low-cost mortgages.
How Does H.O.M.E. Buy Properties for Its Clients?
H.O.M.E. relies on support from a variety of sources, including major
foundations, individuals, several lending institutions, and federal, state,
and local affordable housing funds.
Why Has H.O.M.E. Been Successful?
The Keys to our success have been the dedication, hard work, and leadership
provided by H.O.M.E.'s Board of Directors and strong administrative
support from our partner, the Westside Regional Center.
The 11 volunteers who serve on the Board of Directors have given technical
assistance as well as financial support to the organization.
