A New Bedford family now has a place to call their own.

Tom and Kristine Ringuette are the new owners of a fully renovated two family apartment on Purchase St.

The couple, along with their two children, were able to purchase their very first home through the Attorney General's Receivership Program. This program gives first time home owners the ability to afford a home with help from grants and non-profit funding.

Mr. Ringuette looks forward to raising his family in this new home and becoming part of the community...

The funding for this program comes from the Attorney General's office and grants received by the Office of Housing & Community Development. Funding is also provided by the non-profit group Resources, Inc.

This collaboration has helped renovate and sell affordable homes to 9 other families over the past 5 years.
