State Farm donation supports housing counseling program

State Farm Insurance has donated $5,000 to a Grand Junction-based program that helps homeowners.

Amy Case, homeownership coordinator with the Grand Junction Housing Authority, said the grant will support counseling services offered by Doors2Success, a division of the authority. In addition to foreclosure prevention and default intervention counseling, the program offers employer assisted homeownership, reverse mortgage counseling and free classes for first-time homebuyers.

“With this financial assistance, we hope to help more local residents obtain and sustain the American dream of homeownership,” Case said.

“We appreciate the continuing support and vote of confidence from State Farm. Their generous support will help dozens of local families.”

State Farm and the State Farm Companies Foundation provide grants to nonprofit initiatives that build safer, stronger and better education communities.
