What To Expect

The Hope Institute's FREE Homebuyer Education Course includes six classroom sessions on Wednesday evenings, plus individual sessions with your homeownership counselor scheduled at your convenience. (To request more information about the program, click here.)

The next Hope Institute session starts 6pm, Wednesday January 17, 2018. Click here to request an information packet and we'll send you a starter packet to put you on the road to homeownership with PBCIP's Hope Institute. Don't delay - the sooner you get started, the closer you are to achieving the dream of owning your own home! 

  • In class, you'll be with people who share the same goals and dreams you have.  Together, you'll cover managing your household budget, improving your credit, finding a great mortgage deal and much more!

  • You'll also meet privately with PBCIP's homeownership coordinator, a nationally certified housing counselor, who will help you set up personalized steps and a timeline to reach your goal of home ownership.  You'll know exactly how and when you'll be ready for the house of your dreams!

  • When you're ready to buy, PBCIP's homeownership coordinator remains available to answer your questions and be sure you've found the best possible mortgage deal, and the best house for your money.
