"I am very grateful for all the support Centro de Apoyo Familiar has given me in order for me to be able to keep my house after my husband's death.
CAF helped me obtain a reverse mortgage, that I never knew existed, with low interest rate. I was even able to get money back and make some improvements to my house." My husband's loss was very painful, but I thank God for CAF because today they have helped me by giving me hope, in addition to financial and emotional stability.
Kibsaim is a pastor leading a small church in Woodbridge, in Prince Williams County, Virginia. He arrived to the United States five years ago with a family of four earning a very low wage. Kibsaim got connected with CAF through its network of faith-based organizations, hoping that he could achieve the dream of homeownership. His housing counselor helped him establish a savings and credit rebuilding plan, and in less than six months he was able to purchase his first home with an FHA loan and $5,000 in down payment assistance. He has since inspired a great number of other families from is congregation and his community to do the same
We want to congratulate Ms. Yuly Diaz, who has worked for CAF for over five years, and recently bought her first home. Ms. Diaz built up her credit and worked very hard until achieving the American dream of home ownership.
