A Home of Your Own provides first-time buyers with an opportunity to become homeowners. We acquire foreclosed properties, renovate them using volunteer and skilled tradespeople, and sell the units to low- and moderate-income City of Alexandria residents and workers with greatly discounted and subsidized funding. Based on four recent acquisitions, buyers were able to decrease their housing costs by $350/month. In partnership with the City of Alexandria’s Office of Housing, we have provided affordable homes for more than 25 families.
Application: Call or apply online. Concerning eligibility, folks who are eligible are low income homeowners who cannot maintain their homes (typically elderly, persons with disabilities, veterans, and families with children), as are nonprofit facilities, schools, and public spaces that serve low-income residents. To be considered for home assistance, candidates must complete and submit an application form and provide documentation of total household income, such as tax forms or pay stubs. Some of our clients are referred through congregations, schools, community agencies and service groups, or by self-referral.
