MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Orion FCU announced the second recipient of one of its “Home Run” houses, part of a credit union program that helps members obtain their own home.

Monique Banks was given the keys to her new home on July 9. As part of the program, she will rent a home owned by Orion, make regular monthly payments and attend a financial education course administered by the credit union.

After two years of renting the property, Orion said it will sell the house to Banks at a cost below the tax-appraised value and apply her rent as a down payment on her mortgage.
