GreenPath, along with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is proud to celebrate National Homeownership Month (June) by recognizing the critical role owning a home plays in communities across America. 

“Preserving the Dream” is the theme of this month-long recognition and it reinforces our mission of promoting and sustaining the American Dream of homeownership with our housing counseling and education programs.

 

“Homeownership Month is a time to reaffirm the important role that ‘home’ plays for our families and the neighborhoods where they live,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.  “Owning a home has historically been the principal vehicle for Americans to build equity, start businesses, put kids through college, and retire with comfort and dignity.  We must stand by an institution that has helped build our nation’s middle class.”

GreenPath is a HUD-approved, national housing counseling intermediary, with experienced counselors ready to assist. Visit our housing page to learn more on how we can help!
