Home Ownership

WIN helps families grasp the dream of owning a home by rehabbing and building new homes throughout a neighborhood. This improves the housing stock so that the new homeowners see the value of their homes increase as the neighborhood is revitalized.  WIN has built or renovated over 166 homes and sold them to first-time home buyers.  More importantly, research demonstrates that homeownership improves health and education outcomes, community safety, and stability. All WIN homes built or rehabbed since 2008 are high-energy efficient homes.

There’s nothing like owning your own home. If it hadn’t been for WIN, I’d still be in metropolitan housing.
