I am guardian for a man with developmental disabilities who was the first person to purchase a home through Movin Out. It would never have happened without their help. They are the best organization in the country with a mission help people to acquire stable permanent housing. I know many people who have benefited from their expertise and assistance. A true gift to Wisconsin.

Movin' Out has helped clients of mine who have disabilities to become homeowners, in Madison and other parts of the state, both through solid housing counseling and deferred-payment financing. They have been very prompt and helpful in providing details of housing plans needed to complete legal work to make homeownership possible and take advantage of other funding sources.

When I came to work for Dungarvin in Madison in 1995, I looked for an opportunity to continue the work I had done in Illinois, where I had put together a consumer home ownership program for the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities. Movin' Out was just getting started, then, and through the support of Marcie Brost and others, two people with disabilities who Dungarvin supported were able to buy their own homes. Since then, I've watched the organization evolve into one of the best nonprofits in Wisconsin concerned with housing issues. They recently made an impact with legislation clarifying that property owned by nonprofit providers of low income housing should not be subject to property taxes. I hoe they keep up the good work.

As chair of The Equal Opportunity and Affordable Housing committee of the Realtors Association of South Central Wisconsin, and as a lender I have seen first the hand the excellent work Movin Out Inc. does. I have worked personally with clients receiving the funds, as well as along side them in their fundraising efforts, witnessing the incredible differences this money and staff make in these peoples lives.

My business. The program has assisted my clients with their down payments, amongst other organizations so they were able to become home owners.

Streamline the approval process further, not that it lacks now, and make sure the funding was plentiful so we could reach that many more potential disabled homeowners.

I have worked with Movin' Out for many years and I can tell you that they do very important work, and do it well. Movin' Out not only helps change the lives of people with disabilities through home ownership and community presence; they change communities too. Because of Movin' Out, many, many people who are at risk of living at the margin of society are experiencing the pride of home ownership and contributing in significant ways to their communities. One of the people whom I personally know is Sue, who dreamed of someday owning her own home. Because of Movin' Out, that dream has become a reality, and her quality of life has improved dramatically.

As a developer we have worked with Movin' Out Inc. providing affordable, quality,accessible housing over the past 10 plus years. We have closed more than 30 transactions, all of which were were handled extremely professionally by the Movin' Out staff. The communication lines were always open and promises made, were kept. It is always a GREAT PLEASURE to attend a Movin' Out closing and see the joy on the faces of the new owners and their family. Home ownership gives the Movin' Out clients a sense of pride that is as rewarding as anything we see in our business! Jay Bruner President of Bruner Realty and Mgmt., Inc.
