What does home mean to you?
For generations, many have seen owning a home as the centerpiece of the American dream. HDF hosted an essay contest that asked area youth to describe what home means to them. Above you can see grand prize winner Jessica MacIntyre describe her family's journey and its challenges, loss, hard work and how all these things helped her understand the meaning of home. To date, we've helped almost 1,800 families purchase their first home.
