FACE – Faith and Community Empowerment (formerly KCCD) presents two exciting FREE Homeownership Fairs this summer for first-time homebuyers to learn about programs and resources to make homeownership a reality for any budget.

This summer, FACE is excited to host its 20th and 21st Homeownership Fairs targeting different ethnic communities. Both fairs are open to everyone.
-The 20th Homeownership Fair on July 27 will focus on the Korean community (Korean translation provided),

-the 21st Homeownership Fair on August 17 will focus on the African immigrant community.

Recent FACE Success Spotlight:

Cain Rivera, a FACE Homebuyer Education client, purchased his first home – a $240,000 property in the Lake Balboa neighborhood of Van Nuys – with the help of $105,000 in down payment assistance. Rivera is only 22-years old, has an annual income of $34,000, and used less than $3,000 of his own personal funds to complete the purchase.

FACE CEO Hyepin Im stated,
“We hope that Cain’s story will inspire more individuals who are dreaming of homeownership, that it is attainable and we are here to help!”
