Housing Counseling

Homebuyer Education Classes / Pre-Purchase Counseling

ZION is now offering housing counseling services. This is a new service as of the summer of 2024. We will be adding to these services as our capacity grows in this area. Currently we are offering Homebuyer Education classes and limited pre-purchase counseling. We will eventually offer foreclosure prevention counseling and post-purchase education classes.

If you are a first-time homebuyer, you can register for our class on July 20th. This is a comprehensive class that walks through the process of purchasing a home. The $75 cost includes a class manual and lunch. ZION utilizes the Realizing the American Dream curriculum by NeighborWorks America. This curriculum is endorsed by the National Association of Realtors, Freddie Mac, and the American Bankers Association. A certificate of completion will be issued that satisfies the requirements of many down payment assistance programs. You can register for the class here.
