Stories of Success

Chakoia Gregory Morehouse | First Time Homeowners

“Our family is very appreciate and grateful to have the opportunity to use the assistance of WWBIC and the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee. Thanks to everyone who makes these programs effective and available to those in need, like myself.”

Chakoia and Gregory were both residents of the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee until recently when they moved into their first home! After graduating from WWBIC’s Make Your Money Talk financial awareness empowerment series, they each opened an Individual Development Account (IDA), combined their savings and match dollars, and together reached their goal of becoming first-time homeowners!

WWBIC’s financial awareness programming has allowed the Hardin’s and more than 150 other lower-income individuals build assets – including first-time homeownership, starting or expanding a small business, or returning to school for post-secondary education.
