The Housing Education and Counseling Department offers free services in the following areas:
- Renter Education & Counseling
- Financial Literacy Education & Counseling
- Homebuyer Education & Counseling
- Foreclosure Counseling
Our housing and financial counselors work with individuals of all income levels to help them meet their financial goals – whether it’s securing an affordable rental, purchasing their first home or building a savings. Counselors often work with clients to avoid foreclosure, understand their rights as renters, or help them navigate the complex process of becoming a homeowner.
Counselors work one-on-one with individuals through counseling, as well as, host workshops monthly to educate consumers on renting, home ownership and financial literacy.
Our counselors are extensively trained, nationally certified and have several years of experience helping homeowners facing the threat of foreclosure.
We can help:
- If you want help determining how much you can afford for an apartment, how to work with a landlord, or just understanding a lease, contact CPC for Renter Education or Counseling.
- If you want help with improving your credit profile, creating and sticking to a budget, contact CPC for our Take Charge of Your Money workshop or for Face to Face Counseling.
- If you are behind on your mortgage payments and are facing foreclosure, contact CPC for Foreclosure Counseling.
