Education, Housing Counseling, and Financial Services

The Economic Opportunity Department is a central piece of Hacienda’s vision for families and individuals who are looking to improve or preserve their financial outlook, literacy and assets. As a team of financial coaches and a HUD-approved housing counseling agency, we provide group education and one-on-one coaching to the community-at-large.

Our vision is powered by the prospect of a community in which families can empower themselves to build assets, become financially literate, and set themselves up for the future. Through client-focused financial coaching, intensive financial education courses, and active asset and credit building, we are making our community a place everyone can call home.

Our services:
– Pre-purchase and default prevention counseling
– Home mortgages

Office hours: Monday / FRIDAY 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
