96 Lawrence Ave., Dorchester, MA., 02121. Take Rt. I-93 South to Exit 15. Get into the right lane and veer right onto Columbia Road. Follow Columbia Road all the way to Uphams Corner. Stay on Columbia Road through Uphams Corner. About a half-mile out of Upham’s Corner, you’ll come to a light at the intersection of Columbia and Glendale. Stay straight on Columbia, go past the Uphams Corner Health Center and take a right at the next light onto Quincy St. I don’t think there is a street sign at this intersection. It’s marked by a new-looking brick apartment building at #392 Columbia and the City of Boston’s school kitchen facility. Go under the railroad bridge on Quincy St. and take your third left onto Mascoma St. Go to the top of the hill and take a left onto Lawrence St. The Doman family home is after the brick apartment building on the left. It’s a maroon duplex.
On behalf of Governor Deval Patrick, Tina Brooks, Undersecretary of the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, will present homeowners Hyacinth and Andrew Doman with a framed picture of their home, signed by the governor. The award will be in recognition of the Domans becoming the program’s 10,000th borrower when they bought their home from the City of Boston’s 1st Home Program with a SoftSecond loan from Bank of America.
The City of Boston and Bank of America will also be honored for their longtime support of the SoftSecond Loan Program.
Part of any foreclosure strategy is getting homebuyers into good loans in the first place and we hope this event will help get the word out about SoftSecond, which has made over 10,000 loans and had a record year for loans in 2007, while maintaining low foreclosure and delinquency rates.
The Domans moved from Jamaica to Boston in 1989 and were renters until they bought a home in 2007. Andrew Doman is a cab driver and Hyacinth Doman drives a red line train for the MBTA. They have four children ages 8 through 18. Two attend Brookline High, one attends the Boston Arts Academy and one attends the Swampscott Public Schools.
