Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) contributed $10,000 to HOMEteam in support of funding for home ownership educational programs throughout New Hampshire.
Through a series of workshops and one-on-one counseling, among many other resources, HOMEteam helps first-time home buyers and renters interested in ownership, offering insight on protecting and preserving the home investment.
“The success of the HOMEteam collaborative is a direct reflection of the incredible support we receive from our partners,” said Paul McLaughlin, HOMEteam Director. “We’re elated to be on the receiving end of such generous support from the Merrimack. We look forward to partnering with them as we continue providing educational services to NH residents.”
“HOMEteam has been instrumental in educating individuals and families throughout the state about quality, affordable housing,” said Linda Lorden, President of Merrimack County Savings Bank. We’re happy to support HOMEteam and the wonderful service they provide to local residents.”
HOMEteam’s education and resources offer New Hampshire residents across 84 towns and cities information and tools to make sound financial decisions related to purchasing, renting and maintaining a home. Through workshops and one-on-one counseling, HOMEteam helps first time home buyers navigate the mortgage process, renters save for home ownership and home owners preserve and protect the investment made in their homes. HOMEteam is an independent, non-profit membership organization that was created by a partnership between CATCH Neighborhood Housing, NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire and Lakes Region Community Developers (formerly Laconia Area Community Land Trust) to provide a comprehensive menu of homeownership opportunities for individuals and families.
