CHESTERTOWN — In keeping with its ongoing mission to provide affordable housing solutions in Kent County, Kent Attainable Housing on Feb. 21 announced the sale of its Conley Drive home in Chestertown to Janay Smith and her family.

KAH extended its heartfelt congratulations on what it deemed “a momentous occasion.”

“Having our own home felt like something we could only dream about,” Smith said in a news release announcing the sale. “But thanks to the Kent Attainable Housing team’s help and all the lessons on credit, budgeting, and money, I’m thrilled to say we finally have our own home. It means a brighter future for my kids.”

In addition to providing affordable housing options, Kent Attainable Housing is committed to ensuring the long-term financial well-being of families like Smith’s.
