Two new, affordable homes have been built in Syracuse, on what were vacant lots. They’re the first homes completed as part of Mayor Ben Walsh’s goal of 50 new single-family, affordable homes to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods.
Sheona Williams, mother of two kids, is one of the new homeowners on the city’s north side. She was living in Syracuse public housing and took home-buying classes through Home HeadQuarters. She started saving and months later, was given this opportunity.
“It’s like a dream come true,” Williams said.
