Housing Counseling and Education

One-on-one housing counseling is often the first step for clients who need support navigating their housing goals. Our HUD-certified housing counselors meet one-on-one with clients to understand their situation and develop an action plan and budget that empower them to reach their housing goals.

Our group educational opportunities are classroom-like settings that allow​ clients to learn more about housing topics from a HUD-certified housing counselor. Our Members offer online and in-person workshops on variety of topics that empower clients to improve their current housing situation or access new housing opportunities.  ​ ​                                                                                                                                    

Housing Programs and Products

Home repair and maintenance services provide pathways for homeowners to invest in and repair their homes. Home repairs can decrease your energy bills, provide a healthier living environment and raise property values for you and the generations that follow.
