For families dreaming of owning their own home, but uncertain about how to make that dream a reality, the Central Nebraska Housing Developers (CNHD) will conduct a REACH-Approved Homebuyer Educational workshop in Valentine in May.  This workshop will be held at the Mid-Plains Community College Valentine Extended Campus at 113 N. Hall on May 15 & 22, from 6-10 p.m. both evenings.  Participants are required to attend both evenings to receive a certificate of completion.

The cost of the workshop is $25 per person, which covers books and materials.  Pre-registration is required.
