Recent Census data shows that Waco has a homeownership rate of about 46%. Compare that to the homeownership rate of Texas, at about 60%, or the nation (64%), and it becomes clear that there is still work left to do. Though NeighborWorks Waco has spent the past 25 years striving to help families in the greater Central Texas area achieve their dreams of homeownership, we know this is just the beginning. Our organization has provided financial education to more than 5000 families, and we have seen over 3000 of those become homeowners!
If you want to partner with us as we strive for a future more central Texans own their home than rent–where families are breaking generational poverty and establishing wealth-growing habits–then please, click here to contribute.
