New programs centered on helping people save for a house or an education are taking root at Hawthorne Place Apartments in Independence.
Representatives of the Community Services League, Holy Rosary Credit Union and other groups gathered Wednesday with officials of Preservation of Affordable Housing, which owns Hawthorne Place, to dedicate a financial opportunity center. They also highlighted a program to help people save and plan for the future.
“And that’s going to help our residents increase their earnings and build their assets,” said Preservation of Affordable Housing President and CEO Aaron Gornstein.
