WARSAW — Warsaw Community Public Library is the location for a Pathways to Homeownership meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 23.
The program is open to the public and organized by Sara McNeal Strahan-Lenfestey, who is a candidate for Warsaw City Council.
As the title suggests, the meeting is an opportunity to learn about different programs available to assist people seeking to buy a house.
Alicia Taylor, a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker in Warsaw, will be speaking.
The meeting will run from 4 to 6 p.m.
The lack of affordable housing in Warsaw is an issue many of the 11 city council candidates have mentioned in the campaign. McNeal Strahan-Lenfestey said she organized the program to help local residents understand that homeownership may well be within their grasp regardless of income level.
Taylor is expected to review different programs available through the United States Department of Agriculture.
“I want to educate people in my community and especially in my district that there are opportunities to purchase a home regardless of what they are reading or thinking,” McNeal Strahan-Lenfestey said.
McNeal Strahan-Lenfestey, a Democrat, is running against incumbent Republican Jeff Grose for the District 1 council seat in the Nov. 5 general election.
On her campaign Facebook page, she points out that the library is not endorsing or sponsoring the event.
The program will be in meeting room C and is sponsored by the committee to elect McNeal Strahan-Lenfestey.
