Housing Connection
December 2017
Building communities together.

TSAHC believes in the power of education and building capacity for our nonprofit housing partners. Through our Housing Connection, we want to help affordable housing and counseling organizations access trainings, promote themselves, build capacity as well as provide a network where best practices can be shared. 
Monthly Spotlight:

TSAHC has created a new video to educate potential buyers about our homeownership programs. The video also encourages them to take our four-step eligibility quiz which tells them to contact an approved lender if they qualify and take a home buyer education class.

Please share this video with your clients!
