Victoria Manns was in her early 20’s managing a retail store in Saskatoon when she became a HeadStart home owner. Victoria recognized that owning her own place would cost her as much as paying rent and it made financial sense to look into home ownership. However, saving up enough money for a down payment on a regular priced home was extremely daunting and diminished her dreams of owning her own place. It wasn’t until Victoria looked into the HeadStart on a Home program that she realized it might be a possibility after all.

“Trying to break into the housing market at my age can be extremely difficult. With the high cost of rent, it is extremely challenging to set some money aside to save for your own place. Thanks to the HeadStart on a Home program, I was able to bypass that barrier into home ownership.”  - Victoria Manns
