Here’s a wonderful message from a NACA member that says so much about the parts of home ownership that can’t be found in the blueprints, the deed or the mortgage:

Subject: Our First Thanksgiving
We had such an awesome time hosting our first Thanksgiving in our new home. It was so nice to have my family bless our home with their presence. The house was filled with warmth and joy.
We had 30 guests including my sister that flew in from New York (she hasn’t been to Memphis to visit for at least 12 years I know) and my niece from Maryland (she visits all the time).
My sister had such a good time with my in-laws and felt so at home with all the southern hospitality that she vows to come back again next year with her husband!
My husband fried two Turkeys (they were a big hit and his first time frying turkey) and my mom roasted one as a back up in case his didn’t turn out as expected. We also had ham, roast beef and rotisserie chickens along with all the fixings. Of course I am blessed with a mom and husband who both enjoy cooking that I didn’t have to lift a finger until it was time to clean up!!
Never would have happened without your help and the team at NACA. I am forever grateful for your guidance and shout NACA out to everyone I know so they can be homeowners themselves. In fact as my uncle was leaving he said, ok, this time next year, y’all will be at my house. He’s going through the program now.
Can’t wait to host more events at our house. Every room was filled and everyone had a blast.
Thanks again for all you do and all the long hours you put in to push people on through the process. Hope your Thanksgiving was filled with family, food and fun as well.
