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 Andrea Aldana, Director of Housing Advocacy, at

Our three-session First Time Home Buyer course provides information about budgeting, looking for, selecting, and purchasing a home. Participants are also connected with helpful resources in the community. Plus, those who complete the program successfully can apply for more affordable mortgage products.

Participants must attend all three classes to receive their Certificates of Completion. Certificates are active for two years. Successfully completing the course allows program participants to apply for first time home buyer and ONE mortgage products.

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

We now have an online Home Buyer Education course for first time buyers who are unable to attend an in-person workshop. Click on the link below to find out more.

This program is made possible through funding from Seamen's Bank.
