Housing Counseling

In conjunction with its First Time Home Ownership  programs, NHS provides counseling services and/or referrals. Customers purchasing homes with assistance from HOAP are required to take the First Time Home Ownership Seminar, which gives an overview of the home buying process. This free seminar is conducted by Community Action Financial Services, a program of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley. To enroll in this seminar, call 610-691-5620 or 484-893-1038.

One-on-one counseling programs are also available and cover a range of financial management topics.  One such program, Financial Fitness, helps low – moderate income individuals and families learn how to create a savings plan, establish credit, apply for a loan and more.  Please contact NHS at 610-437-4571 for more details on the Financial Fitness program.
