Wells Fargo Housing Foundation makes $5,000 contribution in support of Home Ownership Education in New Hampshire

NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has received a $5,000 contribution from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation in support of home ownership education counseling and coaching services.  The gift will support the seminars and services of HOMEteam, a collaboration between NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire, CATCH Neighborhood Housing Services, and Laconia Area Community Land Trust for the delivery of free, quality pre-purchase and post-purchase homeownership education programs.

HOMEteam provides New Hampshire residents with the information and tools they need to make good financial decisions related to purchasing, renting, and maintaining a home. Through a series of free workshops, one-on-one counseling, and other resources, HOMEteam helps first time home buyers navigate the mortgage process, renters save for home ownership, and home owners preserve and protect their investment in their home.

“We are very grateful for the Wells Fargo’s support,” stated Paul McLaughlin, Manager of HOMEteam, “We look forward to partnering with Ed Johnson and his team at Wells Fargo in Bedford to offer home ownership education and counseling to residents in New Hampshire,” continued McLaughlin.

In 2014, the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation donated nearly $20 million in support of affordable housing initiatives serving low-and moderate-income households – including for seniors, veterans, and families – through neighborhood stabilization and community revitalization efforts. Since its inception in 1993, the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation has invested more than $150 million to such efforts, along with mobilizing more than 4.6 million team member volunteer hours to build and rehabilitate more than 5,500 homes and counting.
