Dina has spent the last eighteen years as the Executive Director of National Faith HomeBuyers. The program was designed to help people like herself – those who wanted to buy a home but needed help getting it. The program ran successfully in Ann Arbor, but soon began to outgrow its small borders. In 2001, Dina took her successful model into the City of Detroit, and Wayne County, and Faith Community HomeBuyers was born. Since 2001, Faith Community has counseled in excess of 7,000 families, leading to more than 1,000 first time home purchases.
The non-profit 501(c)(3) agency offers; financial literacy, credit education, homeowner workshops, housing counseling, downpayment assistance, wealth building seminars, and a variety of other programs and services.
In an effort to make homeownership a national crusade, The Washtenaw HomeBuyers Program has become National Faith HomeBuyers. The mission of National Faith HomeBuyers is to assist anyone that desires homeownership. National Faith HomeBuyers encourage families to take ownership of their lives and adopt a financially responsible behavior. Families are encouraged to become independent of governmental assistance. National Faith HomeBuyers is MSHDA, Freddie Mac, and HUD certified.
At National Faith HomeBuyers we are improving neighborhoods, one house at a time.
Our Mission is to assist our clients in realizing the American Dream of homeownership. Our program provides individuals and families with resources, knowledge, and financial assistance to become home owners. We will also assist home owners to prevent and/or avoid foreclosure.
