We want every applicant to have a clear understanding of the Program process, from start to end. We offer support and encouragement at every phase, and we expect each Applicant/Program homebuyer to be committed to the positive impact of creating community, knowledge, and wealth together.
Each applicant will have their own path through the application/qualification process.
While some applicants may be ready with a lender pre-approval letter in hand, others might need to take some time to increase their credit and/or savings levels. An approved first time Homebuyer Education (HBE) workshop can help you identify your readiness. Understanding your purchase power will help us identify which home is appropriate for your financial means.
We believe that having the skills to maintain your home is an integral part of home ownership. Through our Partner Organization classes you will create a foundation of practical skills and experiences to support this goal.

Creating community - creating community doesn't happen overnight, we want to provide the tools and resources to build strong community

Financial literacy - whether you are a savings account pro or new to the process, we have strategies to help you succeed

Homecare skills - maintaining your home, understanding what's happening behind the walls and common maintenance tasks for a healthy home

Tool literacy - Tools 101. What should be in your toolbox and how to safely use each one
