Neighborhoods work when neighbors work together. And that is exactly why NeighborWorks® Community Partners Buffalo (formerly West Side Neighborhood Housing Services) has teamed up with D’Youville College. NWCP Buffalo will be offering its Intro to Homebuying orientation series once per month at D’Youville’s Porter Avenue campus.
“At NeighborWorks® Community Partners Buffalo, we believe that homeownership helps stabilize neighborhoods and builds personal wealth for homeowners.” said Jerome Nagy, Chief Executive Officer. “D’Youville has been our neighbor on the West Side for many years. It’s a really fantastic learning environment and we are excited to be collaborating with the college to expand this opportunity for homeownership to their students, staff, and the surrounding community.”
The Intro to Homebuying program is a great way to introduce first-time homebuyers to the process, and evaluate their readiness. This free, one hour orientation teaches participants about the home-buying process. They will also get a chance to learn about down-payment and closing-cost assistance programs offered by the City of Buffalo and have the chance to speak with local lenders about loan products for first-time homebuyers.
Serving Buffalo since 1980, NeighborWorks® Community Partners Buffalo is a catalyst for building and strengthening communities by guiding individuals and families with modest budgets along their homeownership journeys.
