I so so appreciate Newtown CDC. We had the hardest time finding a house we could afford when it came time to purchase a home. We new our family was growing but could only afford small 2-bedroom townhomes, all in not the best condition. Then we found out about Newtown. They helped us every step of the way. I loved not having to compete with the general market for a contract on a house. We ended up in our dream home, on a great street. We’ve owned this home for 3 years and are still so happy here. As repair issue have come up (not many because the house was remodeled so well) the staff has been so helpful in getting problems taken care of and referring professionals for us. Our family would not be in a home like this if it wasn’t for Newtown.

Hello everybody: I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for helping me realize my dream.Although I am still not moved in, my mother and I spent all weekend painting and the only room finished is the Kitchen. My big move will be Thursday since I am back to work today.Angela, you will appreciate this. My son, Aleks, said this morning, “Mom, may I ask you a question…if the house is ready, if you have the keys, and the garage door opener, why are we still here?” (referring to my sister’s house). So I told him, “Because your bed is still here.”
He just smiled.Aleks and Dylan are just as excited as me to move into our home. Please tell everyone involved in this project thank you from me and my boys. I am really looking forward to see my kids grow in a beautiful home. Also, I am hoping that once all is done and the last box taken out to the trash, I can invite you over.Thank you a million.
The Hansens recently became the 300th family to buy a home through the Phoenix Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). They looked for six months and kept getting outbid by investors, but finally their persistence paid off. Linda Osuna, one of Newtown’s Housing Counselors, helped them through the process.

“Without the Newtown Community Land Trust program and the IDA program we wouldn’t have been able to buy a house. Thanks for changing our lives.
