"My new house payment is less than I paid for rent!"

When Lanesheia's rent increased, she decided it was time to buy a home. Lanesheia and her family are now enjoying life in a beautiful new home built by HOST Development and purchased through a grant from Proud Ground in partnership with the African American Alliance for Homeownership.

"As a single mom with three kids on a limited income, a lot of people told me I'd never own my own home. But they were wrong!"

Lanesheia did her homework and explored all her options - and Proud Ground was a perfect fit.

Lanesheia's advice to renters hoping to own a home?

"Never give up!"
