hoMEworks: A beginning
HoMEworks began in 1998 when a broad-based group of homeownership professionals from private, non-profit and government organizations joined in support of consumer education for homebuyers. Working cooperatively, the initial hoMEworks directors built consensus on the best type of program to serve both public and private sector interests while educating potential homeowners. The directors then used this groundwork to develop a curriculum and standards for homeownership education classes and requirements for educators who want to join the hoMEworks network and use the hoMEworks brand name.
The hoMEworks effort to support a consistent, high quality consumer education program for homebuyers has the support of many nonprofit and private sector organizations. Maine Association of Mortgage Professionals, Maine Association of REALTORS®, Maine Bankers Association, Maine Community Action Association, Maine Credit Union League, MaineHousing, and housing industry professionals are all represented on the hoMEworks Board of Directors.
