The American dream is to own a home.
KCEOC believes that dream is still alive striving to provide clients with powerful knowledge that will help them achieve their dreams of home ownership with the Yes You Can program.
Yes You Can is a free program that teaches prospective home buyers how to become successful homeowners. KCEOC has housing counselors on staff to educate and prepare clients for home ownership through Yes You Can workshops.
These workshops are help clients understand each step of the home buying process, from budgeting to closing. Clients are able to determine how much they should spend on a home, how to increase their credit scores, how to shop for the right home, what the sales contract and loan applications are like and even include some basic home maintenance and energy-saving tips.
Post-purchasing counseling is also provided to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.
The project is made possible by the partnership of KCEOC, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC).
The next workshop is scheduled for April 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at KCEOC’s main office located in Gray.
