CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Affordable home ownership is now within reach for thousands of people in Charlotte.

Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA) hosted its “Achieve the Dream” event over the weekend.

Organizers say the event turned out to be more successful than they thought.

The event has been packed since

The event in Charlotte, which started on Thursday, has drawn an overwhelming amount of people, all to take advantage of NACA’s “Best in America” mortgage special.

NACA is a nonprofit organization that grew out of the recession of 2008 when people were losing their homes to foreclosure. NACA’s new program works with area banks, like Bank of America, to reduce mortgage rates for home buyers who can’t afford traditional mortgages.

About 5,000 people have attended this event so far hoping that they can qualify for a low-cost mortgage and own their own home.

“This is the first time ever that low to moderate-income people, minority individuals can get the best mortgage in America and to get into true home ownership that’s affordable for many, many years,” said Bruce Marks, founder and CEO of NACA.
