WDC, in partnership with Aaron's and Habitat for Humanity affiliates, helps transform the house into a fully furnished home including furniture, food and all the amenities associated with being settled in a personal home.
Referred to as a hand up and not a hand-out, these families have successfully completed the homeownership requirements specified by Habitat and required by WDC. Both organizations believe that basic financial literacy and understanding of personal finance provides families with the best chance for educational, social and economic success, a goal of WDC.
We are so happy that they can begin the holiday season in such a wonderful way and enjoy their new homes with their families. To date, WDC and its sponsors have rewarded single parents and over children and dependents with first-time homeownership in 15 cities across the nation.
