Since its inception, AmeriDream has developed several programs to help expand its mission:
The AmeriDream Downpayment Gift Program helps low to moderate-income homebuyers become homeowners by providing down payment assistance in the form of gift funds. To date, we have helped more than 17,000 individuals and families become homeowners.
The AmeriDream Redevelopment Program provides us with a mechanism to turn distressed properties into habitable residences, which we then resell at affordable prices to low- and moderate-income homebuyers.
Door prizes will be awarded. Coffee and catered refreshments will be served. Local artists will be featured, and all donations are tax deductible.
Tickets are available in advance and at the door.
