Since January 2015, there have been 10 graduates of the Homeownership Program!  Not only did families purchase in Lawrence, but also Eudora, Baldwin City, Berryton and Tonganoxie.  Every family that purchase a home also saved their money to receive the matching grant savings fund.  Over the course of the year, the Homeownership Program has given over $26,000 in matching grant checks!
