Programs: Down payment/closing cost assistance - down payment and closing cost grant assistance is provided to qualified homebuyers throughout butler county, ohio. Many low to moderate income families can afford to purchase their own home, but they face the challenge of saving enough money for their down payment or closing costs. This program has proven to be a beneficial resource for families/individuals of modest means to realize their dream of owning a home. Pre and post purchase homebuyer counseling - we provide eight hours of pre and post purchase counseling to our clients. Our clients receive "one on one" training. "one on one" sessions allow us to design an individual homebuying plan for each client and allows each client the comfort of asking questions that they may not want to ask in a group session.

Our foreclosure prevention counselor works closely with the client and the lender to determine a plan of action.
