Establishing, Protecting and Preserving Lifelong Homeowners throughout Los Angeles County.
Marsha Montgomery always dreamed of owning a home of her own where she could raise her sons. But she didn’t think she could on her salary as a grocery worker. Then one day a friend referred her to Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS). She learned about all the assistance available to potential homebuyers and began to believe that with the right planning, owning a home could be possible.
With a new sense of hope, Marsha took a look at the North Hills Villas, an NHS community development project. While touring the new homes, she fell in love with the floorplans, but felt "these houses are out of my price range."
To her surprise, NHS was able to provide the financial education, affordable financing and real estate services she needed to make her homeownership dream a reality. Marsha is now the proud owner of a three bedroom, two and a half bathroom home with mortgage payments she can afford. In addition, she became a part of a neighborhood network, committed to keeping her neighborhood safe and remains a valuable part of the North Hills community. She proudly declared, "My new home is a perfect size for my family. This is my paradise!"
