Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) has once again supported HOMEteam in their mission to provide greater access to quality consumer education for those seeking to buy or maintain a home. The recent $10,000 donation follows years of financial and volunteer support for the organization, as well as HOMEteam’s partners CATCH, NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire and Lakes Region Community Developers.
“HOMEteam was established to help people purchase their first home, or to retain their existing home,” said Rick Wyman, President of Meredith Village Savings Bank. “The more than 60 years of combined experience from three of the state’s top performing non-profit agencies is what makes HOMEteam an ideal resource. Providing education, tools and one-on-one support helps local community members navigate the world of ownership. We are always pleased to contribute to programs that further the economic advancement of our community.”
Through a series of workshops and one-on-one counseling, among many other resources, HOMEteam helps first-time home buyers and renters, offering insight on protecting and preserving the home investment.
“The success of the HOMEteam collaborative is a direct reflection of the incredible support we receive from our partners,” said Paul McLaughlin, HOMEteam Director. “We’re elated to be on the receiving end of such generous support from MVSB. We look forward to partnering with them as we continue providing educational services to NH residents.”
HOMEteam’s education and resources offer New Hampshire residents across 84 towns and cities information and tools to make sound financial decisions related to purchasing, renting and maintaining a home. Through workshops and one-on-one counseling, HOMEteam helps first time home buyers navigate the mortgage process, renters save for home ownership and home owners preserve and protect the investment made in their homes. HOMEteam is an independent, non-profit membership organization that was created by a partnership between CATCH Neighborhood Housing, NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire and Lakes Region Community Developers (formerly Laconia Area Community Land Trust) to provide a comprehensive menu of homeownership opportunities for individuals and families.
