Precious Collier, Dream Fund Client Homeowner since April 2016
Precious Collier had always dreamed of being a homeowner. “I was born and raised in Gulfport. I used to drive through this neighborhood, and I always dreamed of living here. So, I set a goal for myself…I was going to buy a house.” After attending a homebuyer class, Collier learned about Renaissance and the Dream Fund. With a program tailored specifically to address her need for credit assistance, Collier was able to work through the Dream program and purchase her first home.
Collier stands as an example that with hard work and determination, home ownership can be a reality. Said Collier, “I achieved my goal with the help of Renaissance. I started at the bottom with no credit. As a single mom of three, if I can do it, anyone can do it!”
Gloria Harper, Dream Fund Client Homeowner since June 2016
After 9 years of renting, Gloria Harper was ready to invest in herself and her family with a home of her own. “I wanted to become a homeowner because I was spending a ton of money on rent, and I had no stake in the house I was living in. It was almost like throwing my money away,” said Harper. She turned to Renaissance’s Dream Fund program, which allowed her to work at her own pace to reach her financial goal. Through the Dream Fund’s personalized financial counseling and homebuyer education, Gloria was able to turn her dream into reality.
New home owner Gloria Harper said, “I’ve worked hard for the last 20 years, and I wanted to invest my hard earned money in my own home - and I did! It might have taken a little time to get here, but if you hang in there you will see things coming together, and it’s worth the wait!”
