NHS of Greater Cleveland helps consumers to prepare, invest and retain the dream of homeownership. Our goal is to ensure successful, sustainable homeownership for people of all income levels and backgrounds. Successful, sustainable homeownership begins with educated consumers who have the tools, capacity and options to make good choices about whether and what to buy, financing plans and home maintenance.

Our Homeownership Promotion Program provides the services and tools a homebuyer needs to purchase the home of their dreams. Our programming includes a 8-hour curriculum that teaches a homebuyer about credit and budgeting, shopping for a home and mortgage and maintaining a home, with an option of an online homeownership education online course. In addition to the class or eHome America online course, homebuyers meet with a HUD approved housing specialist to review personal budget and credit situations and develop goals and tasks to prepare for mortgage readiness.

Each family that participates in our educational classes will receive sessions with our housing counselor(s) that will allow them to develop a plan for savings and mortgage readiness.

At each workshop participants will have the opportunity to be pre-qualified by at least one lender at no additional cost. Other professionals at the workshop will include:

  • Home Inspector Attorneys
  • Real Estate Brokers
  • Insurance Agents
  • Loan Originators
  • Down Payment Assistance
  • Grant Program
