The Democratic Club of Kent County extends an invitation to all members of the community, to attend our next online meeting and learn about Kent Attainable Housing, a local group dedicated to helping low-to-moderate income families in Kent County achieve homeownership. Kent Attainable Housing buys property, designs or renovates homes, landscapes the yards, and partners with low-income families to buy the home. They build the capacity of their applicants to successfully own a home through required workshops in financial literacy, home ownership, and budget management. They use community volunteers and partners to help make the homes affordable and to mentor applicants through the process. More information about KAH and its activities is available on their website: https://kentattainablehousing.org/.
