Chris and Erica of Albuquerque, New Mexico, didn’t think they’d be able to purchase a home while planning for their wedding. But a friend’s recommendation of Mercy Partnership Fund investee Homewise helped make their dream come true. 

Since 1986, Homewise has helped people to make the best use of their finances and strengthen community neighborhoods through homeownership. Homewise’s free homebuyer and financial education helped Chris and Erica learn about the home purchase process and to prepare financially. A Homewise realtor guided them through their search for a safe, high-quality affordable home. Chris and Erica were able to purchase a home and continue planning for their wedding. Chris says, “We were excited, nervous, and relieved all at the same time! But the biggest feeling of all was one of accomplishment.”
