Assist individuals in obtaining down payment assistance to purchase a home through existing down payment assistance programs. If they are unable to qualify for existing programs, yet are Low to Moderate income buyers, the Foundation may provide down payment assistance to purchase any existing or new home with a Grant that matches the Buyer’s Down Payment (must be self-provided) of up to 2.5% of Purchase Price.


Create and sponsor self-reliance workshops:

t Personal Finance
t Finding or Upgrading Employment
t Advancing with Education

Many people don’t understand basic personal finance and, unfortunately, even college graduates often aren’t taught these principles. Further, many don’t understand how their personal choices and habits affect their financial status. Instead of just providing financial assistance, The Make Life Better Foundation offers Financial Self-Reliance Workshops that help to change an individual’s mindset. We bless those in need with the education needed to break The Poverty Cycle.
– Grant Homes: Gainfully employed, low-income families may qualify for a Grant Home, which the foundation sells at below market value with a low interest loan (roughly 2% below 30 year mortgage rates). Should the homeowner later sell, the foundation participates in the appreciation at the time of sale.

– Transitional Housing: There is a shortage of transitional housing yet those at greatest risk need attention to treat the underlying causes while building within them the strong values they need to succeed in life. The foundation may own transitional housing and partner with other non-profit organizations to provide services that promote self-reliance. This could include transitional housing for the homeless population, individuals recovering from drug addiction, those reentering society after serving a prison sentence or assisting battered spouses to transition into a safe environment.

– Workforce Housing: Since affordability has become such a large issue, the foundation may own workforce housing either within a standard neighborhood or as stand-alone communities. Residents who participate in Financial Self Reliance Workshops and pay rent on-time may receive discounts of up to 10% from market rates.
