Lucia and Roberto's Story

Helping Families Achieve Financial Stability


Increasing the number of Henderson County families who have safe, affordable housing is one of UWHC's long term goals. Working with community partners like OnTrack Financial Education & Counseling helps hard-working families gain the information they need for a more stable financial situation and a brighter future. First-time homebuyers and small business owners Lucia and Roberto lived with their three children in a rented mobile home when Housing Assistance Corporation referred them to OnTrack's Homebuyer Program. The couple attended OnTrack's Homebuyer Education series and then met with an OnTrack housing counselor who reviewed the couple's income, expenses, debt, savings, and their housing goals and helped them develop a home buying action plan. Lucia shared, "I thought the class was wonderful and very well taught. You do an exceptional job in helping first-time homeowners prepare for their path to homeownership. This is information that I will always go back to help me be financially stable!" Congratulations to Lucia and Roberto who are well on their way to owning a home!
