JackRabbit Homes is designed to work within the situations that have previously caused barriers for people to build homes in Indian Country such as lack of infrastructure, bad credit, inconsistent employment, and the reality that if you are living day to day and struggling to get by now, then saving for a down payment is almost impossible, so it should be a backend payment and not a frontend cost. We are investing in people and the community, therefore, our selection criteria focuses on the willingness of the individual to invest in themselves and work hard, while empowering them to achieve their goals and overcome the obstacles.
In the Case of Delinquent Payments
In life we all have our ups and downs and sometimes we face financial difficulties. JackRabbit Homes will work with families to assist you in maintaining the home through either a direct work exchange, forbearance, or other arrangements that can be negotiated before seeking to evict. We are here to help you through the challenges that life may present.
