Our Attorney, Mallory Mangold, is sponsoring the Hammerin’ For Habitat 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, February 22, 2014.
Mallory says, “I am learning more and more about Habitat. They don’t just give away homes to needy families. The families have to go through a rigorous screening process to qualify. If the family qualifies, they are given a home with a much “lower and manageable” mortgage so that they have some responsibility in the deal as well. Habitat also provides resources and support for financial planning, budgeting, etc. to ensure that they do not fall back into the system. The ultimate goal is for the family to become stable enough to purchase their own home and rent out the Habitat home.”
Please come out and support Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, February 22, 2014 if you do not already have plans. It is supposed to beautiful weather and should be a fun day.
