Hogar Hispano, Inc. purchased this Maryland single-family home and transformed it with more than $21,000 in rehabilitation to a family-ready home for a buyer who was at 67% of AMI. The family wanted to have their own place with a yard to call home for their children.
This Centreville neighborhood was hard hit in the economic downturn, but Hogar’s work will ensure that decent affordable housing will help to revitalize this community. The rehab included a replaced oven, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, vent hood, and countertops in the kitchen, replaced flooring in the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and entryway, and as well, replaced interior doors, hardware, windows, and light fixtures where needed. In addition, they repaired the drywall in the kitchen, hallways, and bedrooms, applied fresh paint throughout, repaired the heat pump, replaced the entire roof, and pressure washed the exterior and all walkways.
Hogar Hispano, Inc. (HHI) was created by the National Council of La Raza to provide community and economic development resources, technical expertise, and service to local and national organizations conducting programs designed to improve the quality of life for Latino and other underserved communities. HHI’s efforts are designed to curb the negative impacts on community and to halt declining property values in our neighborhoods by completing all of the above activities successfully.
