 National Homeownership Month - Blog Series

For UnidosUS and our Affiliates, building individual and familial financial capability is not only important because communities across the country continue to recover from the devastating effects of the financial crisis, but also because of the numerous ways the Latino community contributes to the ongoing recovery of our national economy.

As part of our National Homeownership Month blog series, we are featuring UnidosUS Affiliate Spanish Coalition for Housing, a member of the UnidosUS Wealth and Housing Alliance, that works with Chicago’s Latino community. The organization helps individuals and families understand how to buy a home, provides the tools and resources essential to make important financial decisions, and supports families who are trying to save their home from foreclosure.

Read the third blog in a series as part of National Homeownership Month here .
