Joe* and his wife were struggling to save money. After hearing a presentation from his Navigator at a monthly staff meeting, Joe knew he needed to seek out her assistance.
First he met with the Navigator to find childcare for his 14-month-old so that his wife could return to work. His Navigator helped him find an affordable option, and with the extra income, he was able to think about the future. He returned to his Navigator to share his long-term goal of becoming a homeowner.
His Navigator told him about financial workshops that his employer offered onsite. Joe decided to take the classes and learned about setting and achieving a financial goal. A year later, Joe and his wife went through the Champlain Housing Trust Home Buyer Workshop, and they are now proud homeowners.
