Education + Services

Home buyer, financial counseling, and rental education is provided at MHAGH to empower our communities and enhance leadership.

First Time Homebuyers

MHAGH offers a monthly eight-hour homebuyer education program that is strongly recommended for those who desire a more thorough understanding of the home buying process, as it increases the likelihood of a successful homeownership experience. An individual consultation prior to attending the first class is required to determine readiness.

Course Overview

In a step-by-step format, participants examine their housing needs, analyze their financial situations, and learn strategies to improve financial management, in an effort to better prepare for home ownership.

This program will help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a homebuyer and homeowner and landlord. (Landlord training requires participants to attend an additional two-and-a-half hour class, which is scheduled monthly as needed.)
