Through this collaboration, we are excited to unveil the sponsorship of seven additional workshop dates in 2024, a testament to our shared commitment to fostering homeownership within the Greater Kansas City area.
In addition to this milestone partnership with US Bank, we are pleased to announce a strategic collaboration with UMB Bank. This alliance will enable us to provide essential emergency utility assistance and housing support supplies for families attending our workshops, effectively countering barriers that may impede their path towards homeownership.
Building upon existing collaborations with Reece Nichols, Arvest Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and various community partners, JuneteenthKC is steadfast in its mission to bridge the housing equality divide. Commencing on March 25th, our monthly Home Ownership & Financial Empowerment workshops will now be more accessible to families across the Greater Kansas City area, offering direct supportive services to facilitate their journey towards homeownership.
Attendees can anticipate not only valuable educational resources but also connections to a diverse array of community support agencies and housing resources. Our comprehensive approach includes one-on-one Home Ownership education, guiding families as they navigate the complexities of sustainable housing.
As part of the Home Ownership & Financial Empowerment Initiative, JuneteenthKC is proud to introduce special activities that promote positive social interactions among families within the community, all while considering homeownership. These initiatives, coupled with financial education tools, aim to empower families, fostering a supportive environment as they embark on their transition towards homeownership.
JuneteenthKC extends its heartfelt gratitude to US Bank, Reece Nichols, Arvest Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and all community partners for their unwavering support. Together, we are dedicated to making homeownership a reality for families in the Greater Kansas City area, advancing our shared vision of housing equality and financial empowerment.
Emergency Support Resources
As we embrace the blossoming beauty of spring and anticipate the vibrant festivities ahead, let's not forget the importance of ensuring the safety and security of our community. One essential aspect of home safety is ensuring that your fire alarm is in perfect working condition. A functioning fire alarm is a lifeline in times of emergency, offering vital protection for your loved ones and property. It's a small action that can have a profound impact during critical situations. We urge each of you to take a moment today to test your fire alarm, guaranteeing its readiness to alert you and your family in the event of a fire.
