President Barack Obama talks about his plan for faith based community programs, including Ready4Work, in Zanesville, OH on July 1, 2008.
For more than a decade, Operation New Hope’s development program has engaged in the urban neighborhoods of Historic Springfield and East Jacksonville, by restoring and building close to 80 homes. The homes are meant to be affordable; providing the “American Dream” of Home Ownership for many low-income individuals and families.
Operation New Hope has access to many first-time home-buyer government assistance programs, and provides credit counseling and financial literacy workshops. Often buyers are able to qualify for and purchase a home with as little as $500 down.
Homes built through Operation New Hope typically range from 1,375 – 1,678 square feet, can be 1-2 story, 3-4 bedrooms, 2-baths and energy-efficient heating and air conditioning systems. The homes are also designed to maintain the neighborhoods architectural character and heritage.
