Marcos and Angelica Become Homeowners

Marcos and Angelica Become Homeowners

Thanks to VCCDC

Meet the Barajas Albarran Family. After 5 minutes with them, you'll feel like family too. Marcos and Angelica have been working hard for many years but never thought they would be in a position to buy their own home - at least not until their three children were grown up! They weren't sure where to even begin. Marcos and Angelica decided to start by meeting with Gaby, one of our Homeownership Counselors. From there, they attended the Homebuyer Workshop to learn more about the process. After that, homeownership didn't seem so impossible and they felt that they had a clear path forward.


With the guidance of Gaby and the team at VCCDC, Marcos increased his credit score by over 150 points within just a few months. Both Angelica and Marcos learned useful strategies to save for their home and were also able to access a $15,000 WISH grant to put towards their down payment thanks to VCCDC's special programs. On top of all this, Gaby walked Angelica and Marcos through the whole process until they successfully purchased their home and moved the family in!


The family now lives in their new home in Oxnard and are enjoying all of the benefits that homeownership brings; long term financial security, peace of mind and stability for the children. Angelica feels like they are now living 'the Amercian Dream' like they always wanted.
