Housing Counseling

The Housing Counseling Program offers two different first-timehomebuyer's workshops along with homebuyer, budget, and credit/debt counseling. In addition, the program can also work one-on-one with individuals to help them understand the home buying process as well as help them address any barriers to homeownership that they face.

 

First-Time Homebuyer's Workshops
