Homeownership imparts substantial social and community benefits. It provides families an opportunity to accumulate wealth and build a stable future. Homeownership is the basis for a number of positive social, economic, family, and civic outcomes. It boosts the educational performance of children, lowers crime rates and lessens welfare dependency, induces higher civic and volunteer participation, and improves health care outcomes.
