Are you one of the 75% of residents renting in Ward 8? Are you interested in owning property in your neighborhood? Then the Ward 8 Home Buyers Club could be for the place for you!
MANNA has partnered with the 11th Street Bridge Park to offer a monthly Home Buyer's Club for Ward 8 residents supported by a grant from The Kresge Foundation. Participants will receive resources about buying a home, peer support and financial education. The club will also provide a window into new and forthcoming Ward 8 housing developments.
For over 25 years, thousands of first-time home buyers have been coming to MANNA to get themselves ready for homeownership. Graduates have pursued the dream of a stable home for their families, building wealth to pass along to future generations and affecting positive change in the city that they know and love. Do not let others tell you it’s not possible! MANNA has helped residents making as little as $20,000 a year purchase property in D.C. We are looking for participants who are current Ward 8 residents who have a willingness to learn and put in the work to transform this hope a reality. We will be there every step of the way with encouragement and support!
