Center for Financial Health inspires a lifelong commitment to financial wellness by providing tools and resources for people to make empowered decisions about money and housing.
As a nonprofit organization, we derive our assets from many donors rather than charging clients for services provided. We have a broad charitable purpose and a demographically diverse, non-compensated Board of Directors. Because we are a public charity, we receive more favorable tax treatment, do not pay excise taxes on income and have more flexibilty in our operating ability.
What is the Role of a Housing Couselor?
A housing counselor is someone who will assist families and individuals in becoming first-time homeowners and in remaining homeowners once they have a house. As a HUD-approved counseling agency, we provide both homeownership counseling and financial literacy training to renters and homeowners.
Our organization proudly adheres to the National Industry Code of Ethics and Conduct for Home-ownership Professionals and agrees to provide quality education and counseling to every client.
Each Housing Counselor has years of experience in lending and/or real estate and is independently certified in all areas they are providing counseling and/or education. Continued education is a requirement for all staff members.
