This comprehensive HomeBuyer Education program provides over 100 families per year with financial literacy training, credit counseling and pre-purchase assistance. Graduates of this 8 hour course see their credit scores improve and know what to look for (and avoid) when purchasing their first home. Research has shown that graduates of homebuyer education programs are less likely to face foreclosure and are more prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership. The program is led by a HUD certified counselor that works with buyers to create a customized action plan for each buyer.
