“ There are literally thousands of families and individuals in Houston who are not aware of or have an idea of where to look for sources, ways, means of buying a home,” according to information and discussed in a recent meeting with Juan V. Perales, Housing Development Project Manager with Houston’s ACORN Housing Corp. According to Perales, these are often individuals who….by way of varied circumstances, fall through the socio-economic cracks of society, going through life with one lifestyle, that is Apartment Dwelling. Recognizing that an apartment lifestyle does not mean it is an inferior one, but families who have less than a single family home for a lifetime, that element of pride and dignity that generally comes with homeownership can make a significant difference in a child’s choices and ambitions due to environmental factors alone.

The fair which is designed to help potential homeowners get into the loop of resources they need.
