Do you belong to a union? Take advantage of your union membership and get money back when you buy a home. If you are an active or retired union member or the parent or child of one, you may be eligible for exclusive home financing benefits through a major lender.

On top of $500 back at closing, there is a Mortgage Assistance component to the program. If you become unemployed or disabled or locked out, the product has a provision to pay your mortgage during this time period. This program applies to purchasing a new home or refinancing your current home with this major lender. Here are the main components of the program:

• The lender will provide the union member with a $500 award card upon closing on the mortgage.

• First-Time Home Buyers will receive an additional $500 award card. That is up to $1,000 back just for buying your dream home.

• Mortgage Assistance is also part of the program. This mortgage product also provides an interest-free loan or grant, if you become unemployed, disabled or locked out. Peace of mind in case the unthinkable happens.

If you are not a union member, lenders are getting creative for all homebuyers. Take advantage of creative new lending programs to buy your first home, move up to a larger home to meet the demands of an ever growing family or finally buy your dream home. Rates are on the rise and you need to find a way to get the home of your dreams now.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle school Principal Mike Deignan poses with students in front of the school sign that is advertising their "A" rating.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of its Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is from the Akimel O’odham language and it means, “Children of the River.”

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which provides students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.

“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
