Homebuyer Counseling

The purpose of the housing counseling is to provide one-on-one counseling to help clients fix problems that prevent them from receiving affordable mortgage financing. The housing counselor analyzes financial and credit situations, identifies barriers in those situations and together with the client develops a plan to remove those barriers.

Together, we are preparing American Indian homebuyers that will become successful at homeownership! 

Join us for our interactive and engaging workshop that benefits you!
