HOPE Housing Counseling

Becoming a homeowner is a complex endeavor for anyone. Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City is here to help.

We’ll help you find your Path to Homeownership

Habitat KC’s HOPE Program helps individuals and families move forward with their dreams of homeownership no matter where they are on their financial path. Through individualized assistance, our financial coaches help identify the barriers keeping participants from homeownership and work with them to create a plan for success that qualifies them to purchase a home through Habitat KC or on the open market. Those enrolled in the program will learn how to earn a healthy credit score, their rights as a consumer, to prepare a budget and ways to pay down debt.
