Home Buyer Workshops

In our educational workshops for first-time homebuyers, future homeowners will learn how to set goals and action plans to overcome common barriers to homeownership, some of which include credit, savings plans, and avoiding predatory lending. You will be assigned a personal coach with whom you will get to meet one-on-one to ensure that you are following their action plan and meeting your financial goals.
