VCCDC Celebrates National Homeownership Month

Each year VCCDC hosts its annual Homeownership Fair in in June in honor of National Homeownership Month. In 1995, President Clinton decreed a week-long celebration in recognition of homeownership. In 2003, President George W. Bush issued a proclamation declaring the month of June to be National Homeownership Month.  The month long celebration recognizes “the importance of offering every American the opportunity to realize their dream of homeownership and to help work towards making that dream a reality.”

For the past 15 years VCCDC has worked hard to promote and preserve the dream of homeownership through its services and programs. VCCDC has made measurable impacts on neighborhood revitalization by rehabilitating distressed housing and making that refurbished inventory available to families in need. We have educated over 3,000 families through group workshops and counseled more than 6,000 families.  With the support of the VCCDC Home Ownership Center’s education and counseling services and affordable loan products and down payment assistance programs we have helped more than 1,000 families become first-time homebuyers.  In addition, since adding Foreclosure Prevention Counseling as a core line of business in 2007, we have been able to assist more than 1,600 homeowners in saving their home from foreclosure.

We invite you to celebrate National Homeownership Month with us at our 4th Annual Homeownership Fair on Saturday, June 25th from 11am to 3pm at 2231 Sturgis Road in Oxnard! For more information visit our Facebook event page at: https://goo.gl/KZ5gft or click here.
