An amazing crew of volunteers with #CityServe helped us on Friday & Saturday put up a fresh coat of paint in our newest house to help get it ready for new owners. We think they did an amazing job! Thank you Sheryl &Jim Leaman of Calvary Church, Angie Leaman Henry and all of the rest of this amazing crew!
On Friday we had help from 2 awesome groups of volunteers. One pair of volunteers helped us tidy up the yard & mow, while Floyd Boy's Contracting repaired our front steps!

We loved celebrating our Rose Cologne Volunteer of the Year, Ron Filippelli, along with so many friends, and other amazing volunteers from other organizations at the Centre County Council for Human Services' annual dinner! If you see Ron, tell him thanks!
Amazing volunteers from Penn State Homecoming helped us to do some spring yard clean up at one of our most recent acquisitions on Saturday, April 6. This crew of 6 hard working ladies had the place looking ship-shape in no time. Thanks, ladies!
Our Real Estate and Rehab Committee has been busy looking at homes to add to the trust. We hope to add one more house to the trust sometime this spring, so that we can prepare it for a new homeowner by the year's end. If you have a home that you are looking to sell, give us a call! We are an easy buyer; no staging and no showing required, and we can also often buy a home that needs some work. Check out our "Sell Us Your Home" page for details, or give us a call!

The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is a vital funding source for our program, our homeowners, and for affordable housing nationwide. But, what is it? More importantly, if you already own your home, why should you care about current proposed changes to this program? Passed in 1977 the CRA sought to encourage banks to meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. As a result of the CRA, federal regulators evaluate the record of each financial institution that receives Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance, and take this information into consideration when approving applications for new bank branches or for mergers or acquisitions.
