Each month Southwest Solutions hosts free homebuyer workshops for prospective homebuyers from across metro Detroit. The all-day training session is comprised of presentations by representatives from banks, insurance companies and real estate. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate of completion that is required by most mortgage lenders.
Teresa Bent from The PrivateBank regularly presents at these workshops and nominated Southwest Solutions for a grant to support our efforts to increase homeownership opportunities for low and moderate income borrowers.
Southwest Solutions was honored with the 2016 Affordable Housing Award and received a $5,000 grant. A check was presented by Bent and her colleague Deborah Wellman to Southwest Solutions’ CEO, John Van Camp, Southwest Economic Solutions’ Executive Director, Hector Hernandez, Senior Manager for Financial Stability Programs, Libby Palackdharry and housing counselor, Olga Ortiz-Rodriguez.
