Economic Opportunity – (Homeownership Support)

Education, Housing Counseling, and Financial Services

The Economic Opportunity (Homeownership Support) 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 work is powered by the vision 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

– Lending circles

Hacienda’s Lending Circles turn a common and ancient practice- borrowing money with family and friends- into a safe, powerful credit and savings building opportunity. Lending circles (also known as tandas, susu, cundinas, and pandeiros in other countries) help participants raise money for necessities or to pay off other high-interest loans, small business expenses, get a car, etc. Learn More
