What to do this weekend? Something fun and festive, or productive and informational? Who says you can't do both?
On Saturday, August 20, MassHousing will host a craft and information table at the Lowell Water Festival. Stop by to try your hand at origami while learning more about our products, programs and resources for affordable homeownership. You can also enjoy boat races, performances and arts and crafts.
On Sunday, August 21, MassHousing is co-sponsoring the Latino Family Festival at Fenway Park. Stop by our area to play a game and speak with MassHousing staff and business partners about affordable, sustainable homeownership. The event begins at noon, and at four o'clock transitions into a full-blown concert, with performances by Hector Acosta "El Torito"; Salsa legends Paquito Guzman, Viti Ruiz and Nino Segarra; Fuego and Ricky Lindo, among others.
Our participation in these events is part of a larger effort to more aggressively seek out minority homebuyers. Among other things, we've produced a number of print, online, television and radio collateral in Spanish and Portuguese, and we've worked with our lending partners to help them better serve qualified homebuyers who have long been underserved by the traditional mortgage market.
