I'm a first time home buyer. If it wasn't for the ameridream program i would not be purchasing my home. I know several families that also went through this program to purchase their homes, so i support ameridream and HR6694. Low and medium income families that want to become home owners need this program to stay in existence.
“Thanks to AmeriDream I am now the proud owner of my very own home. I am a single mom with two girls. Due to. . .financial difficulties, my credit left a lot to be desired - actually it was terrible. I went from living in an apartment to moving back in with my mom. I worked full time, but it never seemed to be enough.
“Then I met the owners of Best Housing in Bessemer City. They felt that with help, I could finally own my own home again. They took on the task of repairing my credit, and the long process of finding the right places to help me. It took almost a year before everything was finally pulled together, but it was worth the wait and all the obstacles along the way.
“I now am living in my new, 2100-square foot home with my two girls and I am finally the independent person that I've waited so long to be again. I owe it all to Best Housing and places like AmeriDream that help people, such as myself, regain what I had lost so long ago - a home to call my own.”

“I always dreamed of having my own house where my children could sleep in peace, a place that no one could take away from us. This kind of life was not possible for us in El Salvador. My son had to sleep in the apartment’s living room because we did not have a bed or anywhere else for him to sleep. We couldn’t afford anything else. My poor son had to sleep on that floor for many years… Now, my son is a Marine and we’re very proud of him, but I’ll never forget him sleeping on the floor… We tried to save money for the down payment for 6 years when my son’s friend told us about the program. I didn’t know such a program existed. There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for this program and the opportunity it gave our family to own our own home. Owning our own house is one of the best things for us. Sometimes I miss El Salvador, but having our own house, seeing my children sleeping in their own beds and being able to live in peace with my family reminds me why we choose to live here in America.”

"I had been looking for an affordable priced home for my children and myself, but didn’t have a lot of money saved up. My real estate agent suggested trying The AmeriDream Downpayment Gift Program and my thoughts were, ‘I hope they can help.’ Well, you did, and now my children and I have a home of our own. We couldn’t have done it without your help. Thank you so much!”
These are just a few of the hundreds of letters of appreciation AmeriDream has received.
