Lacasa client Martha Garcia just purchased a home in Middlebury. She told us, ““I am happy, satisfied and very grateful! I never thought I would be able to buy a house all on my own.“ She added, “I saw Lacasa as my one hope to help me get to this goal.”
She faced challenges along the way. “I had a family emergency and had to travel back to Mexico to deal with it. That trip set me back in my personal finances and I had to drastically cut a lot of expenses. That and the fact that my husband hasn’t been able to work and help me get to this goal sooner.”
Martha had learned some tips and tricks for handling her finances through a class she took at Lacasa. “The Money for Life class helped me a whole lot. I realized that I was not organized in how I managed my money. I learned how to do a better job of that.”
She went on, “You can get economic help along the road to own a home. There are very good classes and counseling for those who want to become homeowners. Many people out there don’t know this.”
