Homeownership Counseling and Foreclosure Prevention

Homeownership Counseling and Foreclosure Prevention provides comprehensive housing counseling for first time homebuyers and individuals facing foreclosure. Debt reduction counseling and monthly workshops that are required prior to purchasing a home are provided as well as grant/loan application assistance. Our First-Time Homebuyer Workshop helps qualified low and moderate income residents in Broward County realize the dream of homeownership.
