History & Impact

Bringing Families Home Since 1989

Improving affordable homeownership leads to numerous outcomes that extend beyond the house, such as greater economic stability, access to quality education, increased civic and social engagement, better health, and a reduced environmental footprint. We are proud to contribute to making homeownership a reality for more people in our community.

We’re building a more equitable Lake County through homeownership

Housing challenges disproportionately impact families of color and women. We believe that we need to be intentional in closing those disparities so that everyone in our community has the same opportunities to thrive.
