HOME at LAST runs on the support of our members, sponsors, & available HUD grants. We do not charge any client that comes through our organization. Your donation supports our various programs to increase sustainable homeownership among the military, veteran, and thin line communities. We envision a community with equal access to quality, affordable housing, and pathways to increased wealth and financial freedom.
HOME at LAST has provided services to more than 3,000 families in housing counseling, purchasing a home, and maintaining their homes. We will continue to help families and individuals own homes, learn how to make good financial decisions and avoid foreclosure. So how are we going to do it? The same way we always have – through the generous support of our partners: housing and banking professionals, local government, businesses, community leaders, neighborhood residents, and concerned citizens like you.
If there is any segment of our population that deserves to own their own home, it would be those that have sacrificed themselves for the freedom and benefit of others.
If there is any segment of our population that deserves life & career guidance post their years of service, it would be those that have sacrificed themselves for the freedom and benefit of others.
