The Buffalo Urban League helped us get $3,000 to buy a home!
After Jeffrey and Retha Jones got married, the first thing they wanted was a home they could call their own. After renting apartments for years, buying a house was a milestone they wanted to reach together. Jeffrey and Retha couldn't wait to renovate bedrooms for their two children and paint the walls any color they wanted to.
$40,000 in Mortgage Debt Forgiven,
Thanks to the Buffalo Urban League!
When Melissa D. came to the Buffalo Urban League for help saving her home, she was at her wit’s end. She had been laid off from her job and was working part-time at a cleaning service to make ends meet. Her income took a hit, and she started missing mortgage payments. She knew she would lose her home if she did not settle things with her lender.

What is the Enterprise Community Loan Fund at the National Urban League (ECLF-NUL)?
ECLF-NUL is a co-branded effort by the National Urban League and the Enterprise Community Loan Fund to market short term loans that help community developers serving our nation’s low income areas. Loans may be used for predevelopment, acquisition, construction/renovation and bridge financing, to preserve multifamily housing, for-sale single family housing and special purpose housing as well as community facility and mixed use development.
Homeownership may be the single most important asset-building strategy for individuals and families. Homes hold significant value, often appreciate over time, and can be passed down from generation to generation.
