Savings, Homeownership Workshops Planned In Leasburg, Bourbon

The Meramec Regional Planning Commission and the Phelps County Public Housing Authority (PHA) Family Self-Sufficiency Program will host two free homeownership and personal finance workshops on Mar. 21.
The workshops are planned: At 11 a.m. in the community room of Village Apartments in Leasburg, and at 1 p.m. in the community room of Autumn Age Apartments in Bourbon.
Dawn Harmon of the Phelps County PHA will present two programs at each workshop–“Pay Yourself First” and “Your Own Home.”
The workshops are offered at no cost, and registration is not required.
Free training classes are a part of the MRPC and PHA’s efforts to help prepare families who are first-time home buyers for homeownership and make them aware of the resources available to assist with homeownership. These workshops are a part of MRPC’s outreach efforts in partnership with senior citizen housing groups and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, which assists with grant funds to renovate senior citizen housing complexes throughout the region.
Persons needing more information may call Dawn Harmon at 265-4200 or email dharmon@meramecregion.org.
