Nicole Lamar enrolled in the Asset Builders IDA program in June 2005. She was in and out of the program, up and down with savings and her credit was in need of repair. Finally, in fall 2005, she decided to buckle down and commit to the program. She attended homebuyer training, worked on her credit, and began looking for a home. In June 2006, she used her IDA funds to purchase a home in a quiet family neighborhood.
Nicole said that participation in the IDA program truly influenced her outlook on the future. Now she and her two children have a home of their own. “This program is real and it works,” says Nicole. “My advice is if you are serious about purchasing a home and need help, try the IDA program.”
