Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise Celebrates NeighborWorks Week

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) will provide free credit and mortgage assessments for prospective homebuyers during a weeklong celebration nationally recognized as NeighborWorks Week.

During NeighborWorks Week, which takes place June 3 through 10, CNE and other NeighborWorks America affiliates across the country will mobilize tens of thousands of residents, business people and government officials in a week of neighborhood change and awareness.

“NeighborWorks Week is a great opportunity for CNE and similar organizations across the country to celebrate our work in building strong communities and stable families,” said Martina Guilfoil, president and CEO of CNE. “Here in Chattanooga, we will highlight our efforts in creating homeownership opportunities for our community.”

In addition to offering free credit reports, CNE will also host a Ready, Set, Buy Happy Hour at The Edney Innovation Center on Thursday, June 8 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CNE will  end the week in Soddy Daisy with a free homebuyer workshop entitled “Are You Ready to Buy a Home?” on Saturday, June 10 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Northside Neighborhood House in Soddy Daisy.

The Ready, Set, Buy Happy Hour offers a relaxed atmosphere to ask questions about homeownership. Attendees will walk away with information on how to start the homeownership process. The “Are You Ready to Buy a Home?” workshop will be a more detailed approach to homeownership, including information on credit, debt, working with Realtors, down payment assistance and more.

CNE is part of the national NeighborWorks network, an affiliation of more than 240 nonprofit organizations located in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In 2016, the NeighborWorks network helped 360,000 individuals and families with affordable housing and counseling. The NeighborWorks network was founded and is supported by NeighborWorks America, which creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.

You don’t take a kid’s picture at his daddy’s trial and, more than anything, never publish a word that would cause a child ... (click for more)
