It helped a lot such a blessing. As a single mom on disability i don’t have sick time because I can only work part time. So when I had covid my son and I both couldn’t work for 2 weeks and I am never behind on house payments but I was worried about making my house payment and this program saved me! I have a lot of pride in payment history and I know getting behind would have made it impossible to catch up!

"When they told me I qualified for four months of mortgage assistance, I immediately started crying. This program saved us."

After my family and I moved here from Africa, we lived in a Neighborworks apartment complex then worked closely with Patrick on getting a loan for a new construction home. The People at Neighborworks were very nice from beginning to end, going above and beyond. -Samson
