Introduction to Homeownership

ICCF works with individuals and families to determine whether or not homeownership is an appropriate next step for them.

Our Introduction to Homeownership classes will help you prepare for homeownership. Content for this two-session series includes:

  • Homeownership readiness
  • Credit and budgeting
  • Choosing the right home
  • Fair housing
