Homeownership is associated with the American dream-a place of one’s own where roots are established and strengthened, and individuals and families have a say in their home environment and priorities. We subscribe to the belief that owning a home creates a foundation for wealth building.

Despite the challenges of the home ownership market today where too few homes for sale are contributing to home prices that have escalated to increasingly unaffordable levels, the dream is still alive and desired.

NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire is here to help those seeking to purchase their first home and do so in strong financial position.

Our first-time homebuyer and financial wellness education and counseling program addresses the need for quality education and one-on-one counseling to help New Hampshire residents purchase a home and improve their personal financial situation. Our programs and services are delivered through HOMEteam, a collaborative program between NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire, CATCH Neighborhood Housing, and Lakes Region Community Developers.

To learn more about our homeownership and financial wellness programs, call 866-701-9097 or visit HOMEteam.
