There is no doubt about it, everyone wins when an employer commits to helping
their employees achieve homeownership close to work.� Last Spring, Francis Richard-Bey,
in the far right in this picture, became a homeowner in Riverdale, Illinois, thank
to her employer, the Village of Riverdale.� She is pictured with Mayor Zenovia
Evans (left) and Carrie Broughton-Irving (center), president of Regional Redevelopment
Corporation.� Ms. Bey, a former renter, is now buying her own home, which is located
just a few blocks from her job in the Riverdale City Clerk�s office, thanks to
a down payment package from the Village valued at $12,000.
