Providing case management services and holistic support for families working toward home ownership and those at risk of becoming delinquent on their mortgages.
The Almost Home program is a collaboration between Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin. Family Services Director, Kristi Clover, and Program Coordinator, Nicole Kordus provide real case management services to families seeking homeownership or Habitat homeowners who have experienced a change in circumstances.
Almost Home addresses the needs of prospective homeowners who lack sufficient income or financial stability. Services are also provided to existing Habitat homeowners who are struggling to make their monthly mortgage payments due to a change in financial situation. This program can be seen as a stepping stone in the housing continuum as well as a safeguard to keep families moving in the right direction on that continuum.
