setting a new vision for the community.
The journey our home buyers participate in is called LEVEL Path℠. LEVEL Path℠ begins with our LEVEL Health℠ Assessment which identifies the areas of focus and support for our first-time buyers.
to home ownership.
LEVEL Health℠ will be monitored and reassessed throughout the process. Once a certain threshold for the LEVEL Health℠ Score is achieved, then construction will begin on the home. Buyers will participate in a series of educational and home buyer counseling sessions to prepare them for the buying process, as well as the management of their households. When they successfully complete the courses and receive their certificate of completion, they will begin the mortgage process with a partner lender institution. Prior to closing and moving in, the buyer will then complete a course designed to upskill them on home maintenance and life as an owner.
Additionally throughout our process, potential homeowners will engage in service opportunities, build connections with community members, and hone their readiness for homeownership.
While all of this is happening, LEVEL will identify appropriate housing that would make excellent first-time homes. These structures are remodeled, built, and sold to LEVEL program first-time home buyers, having participated in the LEVEL program. These are now prepared home buyers who will be less likely to default on their mortgage and will strengthen their community because of their engagement.
