Home for the Holidays
While there's certainly a different feel to the holiday season this year, the need for a safe, reliable place to spend time with loved ones has never been more important.
Home is the setting for life's small but significant moments. Our homes have become our workplaces, our restaurants, our theaters, our gyms…our homes are EVERYTHING. And for families like Dorothy's, having a strong, stable place of support for all life's precious moments is the greatest gift one could receive.
The Gift of Home for Dorothy
After five years of sharing the same 2-bedroom apartment with her young sons, Dorothy is about to become a homeowner, a title she never thought she would have.
"I've looked into becoming a homeowner before but never thought it could happen as a single parent, and also with Denver's expensive housing costs," shared Dorothy, a Denver native and mother of three.
For Dorothy, homeownership is packed with meaning. It's her opportunity to provide more space for her sons, who have been relegated to sharing cramped space during remote learning sessions during the pandemic. And, it's yet another way this first-generation college graduate will set an important example for her boys.[p>
"If it’s possible for me, it opens up the possibilities for them. Thank you to everyone who is helping make homeownership a reality for us."
