Our Program

Due to Covid-19, we are only offering Online First Time Home Buyer Education Program at this time. For updates about the program, please contact Pelinda Deegan, Housing Advocacy Program Manager, at

The Community Development Partnership has partnered with NeighborWorks Housing Solutions to offer Homeownership Education and Counseling. These classes are incredibly valuable and helpful to anyone seeking to purchase their first home. The workshop may help you qualify for an affordable mortgage.

NeighborWorks Housing Solutions are currently offering a hybrid class that consists of a portion of the workshop to be completed online and at your own pace. Once you have completed the online portion, you will complete a Client Action Plan. You will receive a confirmation email containing several VIRTUAL class dates for you to choose from. During this Virtual Session, you will hear from a Lender, Realtor and Housing Counselor. Following this virtual session, a Housing Counselor will reach out to you to conduct a one-on-one. Participants are also connected with helpful resources in the community. Plus, those who complete the program successfully can apply for more affordable mortgage products.

Please complete the registration form and we will contact you to ensure you receive information on upcoming classes and registration details. CLICK HERE FOR THE REGISTRATION FORM.

The Homebuyer Education Course has received the Massachusetts Home Ownership “Collaborative Seal of Approval” from the Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA).
