Happy Anniversary, HomeGain!

This time last year I had a short story to tell everyone about a conversation in the elevator. This year, I rode the elevator alone so there’s no story to go along with our anniversary blog post.

With that said, HomeGain celebrates its 13th anniversary today. That’s cause for celebration!

Thank you to all of our members and employees!
