June is National Homeownership Month!

One of the best ways you can build lasting wealth, financial security and overall wellbeing for yourself and future generations is to own your home. That’s why we want to make homeownership more accessible to all. The Zavaleta family in Washington and others like them are proof-positive that homeownership is more possible than you might think.

The Zavaleta family began working with Self-Help loan officer Adriana Clara in 2021 to build their credit and savings and closed on their first home in November 2022.
