NeighborWorks America Salutes National Homeownership Month

NeighborWorks America will conduct a series of consumer outreach efforts to support affordable, sustainable and healthy homes and neighborhoods during the 2009 National Homeownership Month.

“For more than 30 years, NeighborWorks America and its network of affiliates around the country have supported and encouraged affordable and sustainable homeownership,” said Ken Wade CEO of NeighborWorks America. “We’re continuing those efforts and this month are launching increased marketing and social media efforts to put the right information in the hands of potential homeowners so that they achieve the American Dream of homeownership for the long-run.”
