Pre-Purchase Success Story: Mr. Fields

Myron Fields has been a renter his entire life. He had given more than 10 years to this community by coaching youth at James D. Gross and C.C. Jackson Recreation Centers. After receiving housing counseling from Park Heights Renaissance, Coach Fields purchased a home on Hilldale Avenue. We welcome Coach Fields to our community. In addition, we thank him for his many years of volunteering to our youth. Welcome Coach Fields!

Closing Cost and Down Payment Assistance
