[Norway, ME] –Norway Savings Bank recently provided Community Concepts with a donation of $10,000, to help Maine families access home-ownership and stay in their homes.
With these funds, Community Concepts will provide one-on-one financial counseling to families seeking a home of their own home and to those who are facing financial difficulties as homeowners. Counseling sessions provide budgeting tips as well as credit and financing solutions to help prepare for homeownership. Community Concepts’ support continues through post-purchase counseling, to ensure that the homeowner successfully manages the responsibilities and opportunities that come with owning a home.
These free and confidential programs have been built to support and help low to moderate income families through tough times. “We are excited to partner with Community Concepts in their efforts to support and educate Maine families preparing for homeownership” stated Janice deLima, CRA Officer at Norway Savings Bank.
