Foreclosures get a makeover

Local non-profit rehabilitates dilapidated homes

A local non-profit is beginning to see the benefits of its plan to fix up foreclosures.

Housing Opportunities Made for Everyone, or H.O.M.E, buys foreclosed properties and renovates them to sell as affordable housing for income-qualified families. To date, H.O.M.E has been restoring 13 properties.

Two of the homes have sold, and owners are moving in, according to its founder, John Barlow.

See some of the renovation work and learn more in a Studio 55 video report available in the player to the left.
