CATCH Neighborhood Housing has received a grant of $11,600 from the Lincoln Financial Foundation in support of their collaborative housing education program, HOMEteam.
Created in 2014, HOMEteam is a partnership between CATCH, NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire, and later the Laconia Area Community Land Trust (now Lakes Region Community Developers), to provide residents throughout New Hampshire with tools and education for purchasing, renting, and maintaining a home. HOMEteam offers high-quality workshops like First-time Homebuyer and Financial Capabilities seminars, one-on-one counseling, and other resources to help buyers and renters.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of the Lincoln Financial Foundation,” said CATCH President, Rosemary M. Heard. “Lincoln has been a significant supporter of HOMEteam since its inception and we are thankful for this great relationship. This important funding helps families throughout Concord and the state get the essential homebuyer education and counseling that they need, and allows us to continue to grow these programs so more families can access these opportunities, and eventually purchase their own home.”
Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group, believes in empowering people to live greater lives, which advances culture and empowers greater positive change. Its grant is part of Lincoln Financial’s annual $10 million investment in its local communities’ youth education, economic and workforce development, human well-being and arts programs.
