NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has received a $30,000 contribution from Merrimack County Savings Bank in support of home ownership educational and coaching services. The gift helps fund the educational and counseling services of HOMEteam, a collaboration between NeighborWorksâ Southern New Hampshire, CATCH Neighborhood Housing and Laconia Area Community Land Trust.
New Hampshire residents utilize the information and tools provided by HOMEteam to make good financial decisions related to purchasing, renting and maintaining a home. Through a series of workshops, one-on-one counseling and other resources, first time home buyers are able to navigate the mortgage process, renters can save for home ownership and home owners are better able to preserve and protect their investment in their home.
“The support the Merrimack has committed to this program is outstanding, and greatly appreciated,” stated Paul McLaughlin, Manager of HOMEteam. “Our team looks forward to working with the Bank as we continue to provide important educational services to New Hampshire residents,” continued McLaughlin.
Phil Emma, President of The Merrimack added, “We value this relationship greatly; we know and trust the great HOMEteam talent that is working on behalf of future homeowners and recognize that our organizations share many goals related to the economic health and well-being of our communities.”
