Becoming a homeowner is a large endeavor for everyone involved. It takes a lot of hard work and determination, but we continually meet people like you who are up for the challenge.
We want to do everything we can to help prepare you for the day you receive your keys, and well beyond. One way we do that is through financial education.
As part of the required sweat equity portion of the Habitat homeowner process, we believe that financial education leads to a greater investment in the home. Additionally, it builds a more solid foundation for long-term personal success. Household finances are a source of stress no matter the size of your income or family, and we want to help alleviate any concerns or barriers on your path to homeownership.
Much like having a safe, affordable place to call home will boost your sense of well-being and pride, being able to take control of your finances will give you confidence and momentum to dream bigger. It starts with a house, but where it goes after that is up to you.
During these financial education classes, we’ll cover topics such as budgeting, credit cards and credit reports, debt and loans, saving, investing and planning for the future, emergency situations, as well as Habitat homeowner mortgages. Gaining a more in-depth understanding of these important concepts will become part of a tool belt you can use to build a better future.
