After many years of renting, Caroline, a senior resident, purchased her first home. She looked at many houses prior to finding the perfect home for her. Following her purchase, Caroline took advantage of the many United Way and donor funded homeownership education and counseling services provided by PathStone.

Caroline started with a class on budgeting on a fixed income, so she would be able to afford the home of her dreams. Rose was approved for a mortgage and received down payment and closing cost assistance through PathStone’s various community partnerships. At last, Caroline closed on her home and enjoyed the holiday season in a home of her own for the first time. 

When asked to share why she wanted to purchase a home, Caroline simply replied, “I just wanted to have a home that is mine.”
