A First Time Home Buyer Success Story
Ali J. was a victim of domestic violence and was determined to make a better life for her and her
two children. She worked two jobs because she wanted to change her circumstances and place her
family in a healthier neighborhood. With her tax refund and help from various grants and the assistance
of NAVA she was able to purchase her first home from NAVA.
Please take a moment to listen to her story.
We assisted this home buyer by contributing 6% towards her closing cost and adjusting the price so
that this single mother of two could become a homeowner. The property was purchased from HUD for
the purpose of selling to a first-time home buyer.
We focus on properties that are nuisances in the community which bring down property values. Our
organization feels that to make a difference in any neighborhood it must start with house-by-house, block-by-
block, job training and job placements in the community.
