Housing counseling

Staying in your home can be a challenge. Housing counseling can help.

Some of our housing counseling agencies are still working remotely, and able to host virtual counseling sessions. Please contact any of our agencies to begin the counseling process or if you have any questions about our programs.

Housing counseling in your community

Home ownership brings both rights and responsibilities. Home maintenance can be costly. Tenants and landlords don’t always see eye-to-eye. A financial crisis could bring a family to the brink of foreclosure or eviction and maybe even homelessness.

City-funded housing counseling agencies can help. Housing counselors can help prepare people to buy a home. They assist tenants fighting eviction. They help homeowners facing foreclosure. And they can help address specific issues facing seniors and people with disabilities. Download an English or Spanish flyer with a current list of DHCD-funded Housing Counseling Agencies.

Trained housing counselors offer free group and individual counseling on:

  • Mortgage and tax foreclosure prevention.
  • Credit repair and maintenance.
  • Budgeting and money management.
  • Rights and responsibilities of homeowners.
  • Mortgage application and purchase process.
  • Tenant/landlord issues.
  • Home repair.
  • Fair housing rights.
