We appreciate that FICOH shares our values and supports our work in sustainable homeownership,” said Dennis Oshiro. Homeownership has significant positive human benefits in education, employment, and physical and mental health for individuals, families, and communities – all which can relieve burdens on public assistance (i.e. welfare, food stamps). Unfortunately, Hawaii has the fifth lowest rate of homeownership in the nation according to the CFED Assets & Opportunities Scorecard. Only 56 percent of all housing units in Hawaii are owneroccupied, compared to the U.S. average of 63 percent. The Hawaii HomeOwnership Center is committed to addressing the rate of homeownership in the state so more families and communities can appreciate the benefits that come through educated homeowners that are prepared to sustain and maintain their asset. “Increasing homeownership in our state benefits families and Hawaii’s economy,” said Jeff Shonka, President and Chief Executive Officer of FICOH. “HHOC fulfills an important need in our community and we are proud to support their mission of helping more of our local families achieve sustainable homeownership.” “FICOH has been an annual supporter of the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center,” said Dennis Oshiro, “We value their partnership in reaching more of our neighbors to attain a safe family base through homeownership.” The Hawaii HomeOwnership Center’s mission is to provide education, information and support to create successful first-time homeowners in Hawaii. By addressing barriers and increasing rates of home ownership, the HomeOwnership Center aims to build stronger families and communities throughout the state of Hawaii. Services are available to anyone regardless of their income. Info: hihomeownership.org.
