Can’t get a mortgage? Local counseling service wants to help

If you see all the home-buying hype and think, "I’ll never be able to do that." There’s a new free program offering help to those with some financial challenges.

Majel Hein said the Marine Credit Union Foundation’s Finding HOME program aims to "increase financial literacy and stability of individuals in the communities where Marine calls home." 

"Before entering Finding HOME, participants must be unable to qualify for a mortgage with Marine Credit Union or any other traditional financial institution due to existing financial challenges," Hein said. "The purpose and design of Finding HOME is to help these under-served individuals improve their current financial situation, achieve home-ownership, and develop critical skills and knowledge to maintain financial stability."

You can contact Hein to learn how to get started at the phone number 608-791-1385. Those interested can also email
