Houseworkin' It: Home Buying & Maintenance Classes in Dodge City


Listen up, Dodge City! According to the Community Housing Association of Dodge City (CHAD), the need for affordable, single-family homes persists in the greater Ford County area. An organization at the forefront of advocating for prospective home buyers, as well as home owners, CHAD will host a series of no-cost home maintenance classes open to the public. I had the pleasure of speaking with Mollea Wainscott about this initiative. The first course is the “Homebuyer Education Class,” and it’s this Thursday, July 23rd from 6-8pm CT, and it’s being offered in English and Spanish. Local experts will share their knowledge on the homebuying process, educating individuals who are looking to purchase a home. Local home mortgage lenders, realtors, home insurance representatives, title company staff and home inspectors will all provide information about their trade.

Next up, CHAD will present the sixth round of their “How to Series: Home Maintenance Edition” classes, focusing on teaching the basic skills needed to maintain your home (and knowing when it’s time to call in a professional). The first class is called “Basic Tools,” and it’s happening on Tuesday, August 18th at 6pm. Future classes will include everyday electricity, energy efficiency, and drywall repair.

All classes will be free to the public, offered in the evening at the newly remodeled University/Training Center in Hennessey Hall located at 240 San Jose Drive in Dodge City, KS. Registration and more information can be found here.
