Shalom Homes

Through Shalom Homes, first-time homebuyers of limited means can gain access to the benefits enjoyed by other homeowners.  These benefits include equity and long-term family stability, as well as investment in the community and commitment to the neighborhood. Restored Home

Shalom Homes has restored or built fifteen homes that now stand out as high quality homes in Petersburg.  All of the homes built by Shalom Homes are sold as affordable homes for low-income buyers.  Shalom Homes believes that all people, regardless of income, deserve a beautiful, stable, and efficient home, built for the long-term.

Shalom Homes is a licensed Class A contractor and a registered member of the National Association of Home Builders.  The organization is also an active member in both Energy Star and EarthCraft programs.  In building affordable, yet environmentally friendly, homes, Shalom Homes fills a void in a vastly underserved market.

Neighborhood Stabilization Program

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) was authorized under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008 to redevelop vacant and foreclosed properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within their communities.

Pathways is administering the NSP in Petersburg through the acquisition, rehabilitation and resale of single family homes in the Walnut Hill neighborhood. These homes are available for owner-occupancy at prices far below market value.

Counseling and Education

Pathways is partnering with Virginia Supportive Housing to provide buyer-applicants with at least eight hours of counseling including review of the application, pre-approval, and closing processes, eligibility for down payment assistance, developing a spending plan and appropriate mortgage payment, financial counseling including post closing issues such as over spending and contact by creditors and lenders, and a home maintenance demonstration.
