moving right along

Little to no fanfare takes place when Adopt a Family places their clients however the other evening they hosted an open house.   I had seen this house when it first went on the market and you would not believe the before and after transformation. It has totally been refurbished and now looks as good as any of the Habitat for Humanity homes which are built up from scratch. This happy family will be closing on their Adopt a Family home in Tropical Ridge in just a few weeks.  Welcome neighbor.Moving right along here are two open invitations to welcome two more families into Lake Worth.  First one takes place on Friday the 27th of this month followed the very next day Saturday with this one. In a missive from Joan C. Oliva, Executive Director of the Lake Worth CRA, she states.  “The Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is the lead entity of the Lake Worth NSP2 Consortium, a $23.2M grantee of Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Consortium is acquiring and rehabilitating or constructing over 100 properties in a targeted area of the CRA District, disproportionately affected by the foreclosure crisis and economic downturn.   The main development partners include Adopt-a-Family of the Palm Beaches and Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. The goals of the program include helping to stem the free fall in property values, putting residential properties back on the tax rolls, reconnecting neighborhoods, and providing safe, energy-efficient homes for program-eligible families.  The program provides for down-payment and closing cost assistance to low and moderate income households. For more information, please visit the Consortium’s website at, ……….  Hope to see you all there.”
