Financial Education

overview

The Financial Education and Counseling program is central to the work of NHS. The program provides families and individuals with the knowledge and guidance to make healthy financial decisions. As community members continue to spend a greater percentage of their income on living expenses, the program focuses on building financial capability, knowledge of financial services and products, credit management, avoiding predatory lending practices, potential homebuyer, tenant and homeowner education.

NHS works to place families on the path to financial stability, teach important financial skills, and counsel underserved individuals towards their goals. By enhancing the financial knowledge and skills of families, NHS stabilizes diverse communities and helps families and individuals begin to work towards long-term financial prosperity.

The Financial Education and Counseling program consists of a series of classes, clinics, workshops and one-on-one counseling sessions specifically designed to provide families with the resources and tools required for them to become and remain informed homeowners. NHS Financial Education and Counseling provides information on the entire process of homeownership including:

  • Assessing Readiness to Buy
  • Managing Your Money
  • Understanding Credit
  • Obtaining a Mortgage Loan
  • Shopping for A Home
  • Protecting Your Investment

All sessions are offered in English and Spanish.
