This past holiday season was something special for Steven, Jarrett, and Mila. In the final month of 2022, the three became new homeowners when they closed on Westside Future Fund (WFF) homes in English Avenue.
Each celebrated their closings with a ceremonious contract signing alongside members of the WFF team.
The purchases were made possible by the Home on the Westside program, an initiative to promote community retention by providing financing support to help lower the cost of homeownership.
Two of the homes can be found on Proctor Street just a quick walk across the street from Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park. The third home is a few blocks away on Meldrum Street on what was formerly blighted, vacant land.
We are looking forward to even more closings in 2023. This month, another new single-family homeowner will be celebrating with a closing, and construction on five more properties will be complete in the first quarter.
It doesn’t stop there. Over the next six months, we will have ribbon cutting ceremonies for the completion of four different multi-family property renovations that were formerly blighted and vacant. These additions will bring a total of 33 rental units to our Home on the Westside program.
We look forward to a year of celebrations on the Westside.
