HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership: Building the American Dream

Owning your own home has always been the "American Dream".  A home can provide a sense of family, place and pride.  But finding a home that's affordable can be challenging and understanding how to finance a home can be overwhelming!! Fortunately, the HOPE VI Homeownership Program can help!  The HOPE VI Homeownership Program is especially designed for low-income families who prefer to own their home over renting.

Up to nine new, affordable homes are slated to be built in East Covington by the Fall 2015.  Located on both 10th and Robbins Streets, between Greenup and Prospect Streets, these new, energy efficient homes are made possible thanks to funding from the HUD/HOPE VI Jacob Price Revitalization Grant.  The architectural drawings are completed and there will be one and two story designs with two and three bedroom designs.

Brighton Center and Catholic Charities are partnering with us to provide their Homebuyer training classes to all families interested in the HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership Program.

HAC Residents are Dressed for Success!!

Congratulations to our ladies who attended our Dress for Success event on June 24th, 2015.  Dress for Success Cincinnati’s Mobile Unit came to HAC’s main office and provided interview suits to our residents.  This was an exclusive event for ladies participating in HAC’s HOPE VI, Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS), and GLASS (Get Learning and Start Succeeding) classes.  Eight of your neighbors were “dressed for success” from head to toe, including accessories such as jewelry, scarves, shoes, and purses.  However, this event isn’t just about the clothing.  It’s a unique event for women only and our participants described the day in their own words: “I’m confident and excited.”   “I’m ready to take on the world.”      “I’m styling and profiling.”      “I feel good.  I feel like a lady.”     

Do you need an extra boost towards success?  We are always accepting applicants for our self-sufficiency programs.  Please call Jennifer Bennett at 859-292-3263 ext. 4 today!
