Many people dream of some day buying their own home.
But most of us also have questions, like:
How much home can I afford?
What if I have credit problems — or no credit?
What if I’ve had a bankruptcy?
How do I qualify for a mortgage?
From improving credit and finding mortgage loans, to learning about the responsibilities that come with owning a home, our Housing Counseling Program works with potential homebuyers to provide the resources they need to decide whether homeownership is the right choice for them. We also assist homeowners seeking loans and grants to make improvements to their homes.
As an adopter of the acclaimed National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling, our Housing Counseling Program is designed to provide high-quality services that are provided by a HUD-certified Housing Counselor approved by both the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA).
We’re also part of the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency’s statewide network of counselors who are helping people just like you learn how to take charge of your money.
