The Wiggins bought their first home from Jericho Road in the fall of 2009. Curtis, a maintenance worker at Cohen High School, heard about Jericho Road through one of his co-workers, David Robinson, who lives at 3211 Dryades Street. The family attended a Jericho Road block party in May 2008 and have been looking for a home since then.
Curtis and his wife Jennay worked with the United Way’s Individual Development Account program, which matches individuals’ savings in order to help low-income working families save money to purchase assets.
Mr. Wiggins is originally from Central City and feels as though the neighborhood has changed a lot in the past few years, enough that he feels safe rais-ing his four children here. The new investments in the neighborhood of Harmony Oaks (just across LaSalle Street) and the other Jericho Road houses on Sixth Street and throughout the neighborhood made Curtis and Jennay confident that theirs is a great neighborhood to invest in.
