The HomeOwnership Center has been offering personalized financial advising, credit analysis and mortgage loans for 20 years, and during that time it often has been the difference between a family buying a home or not.

To complement its Home Buyer services, Jenifer will be responsible for developing the organization’s new Home Owner services division. This new bundle of services will offer low-interest home repair loans, mortgage refinancing, financial counseling, and educational classes in home maintenance to residents in the area who already own their own homes.
