United Housing

Decent Housing - $25,000 Grantee

To stabilize and strengthen neighborhoods, United Housing helps families reinvest in their communities through homeownership. The nonprofit provides tools to strengthen its customers’ financial stability, to educate customers about purchasing a home, and to increase customers’ access to mainstream financial institutions. The Community Foundation grant will be used to translate United Housing’s traditional Homebuyer Education class into a mobile Homebuyer Education workshop. The certified curriculum will help 300 Binghampton and Crosstown residents learn the fundamental mechanics of financial literacy and homeownership.
