We are proud to pledge $32,500 of support to NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire. This contribution will help fund homeownership education, counseling and coaching services offered by the HOMEteam division of NeighborWorks®, which provides services across central and southern New Hampshire.
“We are very excited to begin working with our new partners at Meredith Village Savings Bank,” said Paul McLaughlin, HomeOwnership Manager for NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire. “The Bank’s staff is committed, passionate and knowledgeable. We appreciate their generosity in helping to ensure the availability of free homeownership education services in the state.”
“Buying a home can be a complicated process, involving many players – so being educated about each step in the process and assembling a team of experts and resources you trust can help you make well-informed decisions along the way,” said Carol Bickford, SVP Retail Lending Officer for Meredith Village Savings Bank. “The HOMEteam’s classes and counseling services are an excellent resource for consumers at all stages of the home buying process, and we are proud to join them in their efforts to provide expanded homebuyer education programs across New Hampshire.”
All of NeighborWorks® New Hampshire’s pre-purchase and post-purchase home ownership and financial literacy education services are delivered through HOMEteam, a collaboration with CATCH Neighborhood Housing and Laconia Area Community Land Trust to provide a seamless delivery of a comprehensive menu of homeownership services. The collaboration allow residents to take advantage of a series of free educational workshops and one-on-one counseling related to housing, such as navigating the mortgage process for first time home buyers, saving for the purchase of a home, and preserving and protecting an investment in a home, in a number of New Hampshire communities.
