CREDIT BUILDING

WE HELP you REPAIR & ESTABLISH CREDIT


We help every client achieve good credit by addressing their individual needs. We address credit issues for clients with credit history, and help those who need to establish credit to increase their score and lower their debt.

Our unique Credit Action Plan provides our clients with a definitive pathway to learn and implement consistent credit practices to obtain a high credit score and lower debt. Clients work one on one with Technical Assistance Officers to address any credit issues through the term of the loan.

HOMEOWNERSHIP COUNSELING

building capacity to purchase a home


We provide low to moderate-income prospective first time homebuyers with the financial resources and homeownership counseling necessary to successfully save for and purchase a home. Clients follow a set curriculum lasting up to 24 months, with instruction administered in both individual and group settings. Participants are also afforded access to a secured pre-purchase microloan, an important tool in building their credit and capital in parallel to home ownership training. The end goal is for graduates to secure pre-approval for mortgages.
