Press Releases

For Immediate Release: Friday, June 7, 2024

The Montgomery Office of Human Rights, the Montgomery County Chapter of the NAACP and the Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church will host a free seminar for first-time homebuyers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, in Gaithersburg. 

The seminar will be held at the Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church, located at 610 South Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg. 

The seminar will provide prospective home buyers with information on what is involved in the purchasing and maintaining of a home. It also will address the benefits of home ownership and accruing home equity for families.

“Historically, communities of color have not had the same opportunities to buy homes, and that has left them out of the benefits of home ownership, including helping to build personal credit and wealth,” said County Executive Marc Elrich.  “I encourage those who are thinking of home buying to attend this valuable program.”

The program is free, but registration is required. Register at Eventbrite.

“Assisting and turning renters into homeowners here in Montgomery County is a top priority of the NAACP,” said Linda Plummer, Montgomery County NAACP president. “Please register and participate in this program and future events. Helping more people become potential homeowners is an important program for the County.”

“Providing people with home ownership resources is a vital aspect of equal housing opportunity work,” said James Stowe, director of the County’s Office of Human Rights.
