Education, Housing Counseling, and Financial Coaching
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.
Take a look below for the various programs we offer, or feel free to call the Economic Opportunity Department office directly at (503) 961-6432.
Camino a Casa prepares prospective homebuyers for homeownership. Clients work closely with financial coaches and HUD-certified housing counselors throughout the entirety of the home-buying process.
