Letter From President
Although foreclosure prevention remains our primary service of The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati we are very excited with the fresh ideas, new techniques, and positive attitudes toward our clients that we use in the battle foreclosure. This continues to motivate us to not only meet our goals but to surpass them year after year.
The Home Ownership Center employs a variety of strategies to combat foreclosure, but the award winning, BUZZUS Foreclosure Prevention Phone-A-Thon has gone national continues to help us reach each year’s goals. We use the BUZZUS Foreclosure Prevention Phone-A-Thon as an outreach tool to insure that all community residents who are in need foreclosure assistance have the chance to access our free services. Through the BUZZUS Foreclosure Prevention Phone-A-Thon we have had the great opportunity to welcome more partners, and increase our service area.
Our Home Buyers Education and Financial Fitness classes continue to be a success way to prepare for successful home ownership. Dramatic changes in the housing market and mortgage lending truly makes these offerings a must for all incomes. In 2011 we changed our class schedule to try to accommodate to all residents. You can refer to our interactive website or call us for class schedules.
In 2012 we began a program to rehabilitate single family homes for homeownership. These are vacant properties creating blight in neighborhoods being transformed into top quality owner-occupied homes to strengthen neighborhoods and communities. This will become a major program in 2013. Through our website you will be able to get continuing updates about homes for sale, future foreclosure events, and other free opportunities available to residents of greater Cincinnati from The Home Ownership of Greater Cincinnati, Inc.
