Home of Your Own Program Update: April 29, 2017
If you’ve always wanted a home of your own, St. Vincent de Paul may be able to help! We are partnering with Oregon Construction Guys, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation (NEDCO) to help make dreams a reality. This unique partnership is formed to create beautiful architecturally designed homes that are affordable to build and affordable to own.
Participant homebuyer-builders will perform select tasks to gain some “sweat equity” to reduce the cost of the home and obtain low interest loans with payments tailored to fit your budget. St. Vincent de Paul may assist with funding to help further reduce the USDA loan. All of this, along with help from a home builder with years of self-help affordable housing expertise, make this a great opportunity.
