Financial Education and Counseling
Pre-purchase Homebuyer Group Education
Every person deserves to have a decent, dependable place to call home. In Jefferson County, Alabama, THE HUB CDC is doing what we can to help make that happen.
We understand that becoming a homeowner can present challenges – some welcome, some not. Our program is designed to help residents prepare and navigate the home purchase process successfully, to understand how to obtain and service a mortgage and avoid the pitfalls of delinquency and default.
Facilitated by qualified instructors, this program helps prospective home buyers wisely choose housing professionals and provides them with information on establishing and maintaining good credit ratings, personal financial management, loan agreement terms, property taxes, insurance, home and property maintenance, sales contract, and the closing settlement statement.
Individual Financial Counseling
Our certified coaches can work with you to establish a household budget and help you address your credit challenges. During a private individual session, our coaches can assess your current income and expenses, help create a spending plan, review an updated credit report and work with you to achieve your financial goals.
Financial Capabilities Workshops
THE HUB CDC believes that one of the most effective ways to serve our community is to assist residents in obtaining personal financial wellness through wealth building and financial education. Our curriculum is designed to help participants understand the basics of credit, spending plans, financial planning, and wealth management.
