Homeownership Resources

Thank you all for joining us at yesterday’s Homeownership & Financial Workshop, we’ve learned so much about the problem areas that trouble our community in the pathway to Homeownership.

We want to share the below resources with anyone who could not make it to our virtual event, but still would like to get started with buying a home, finding a solution to credit optimization, refinancing, or more.

Credit Optimization:


Cost is $1 for a 7-day trial, cancel any time, NOTE: after 7 days you will be charged $26.99
Answer the 4-5 security questions. If you don’t do this, we can’t retrieve your report
THEN send your username, password and LAST 4 SS# to [email protected]
Include your first and last name + phone number and we will contact you promptly to review!
