A collaborative partnership between five trusted nonprofit agencies in Oregon, HomeSmart Oregon was created to help first time home buyers access support for the process. First time home buyers throughout the state can find online home buyer education and contact information for an agency with one-on-one home buyer counseling available. Homeownership counselors can help buyers identify barriers, develop a plan, and locate down payment assistance and/or special loans for qualified households.
Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services is proud to be part of this collaboration and happy to work with other organizations that empower people to pursue the American Dream in the ways that best suit their circumstances. Other nonprofits with HomeSmart Oregon include HomeSource of NeighborImpact, NEDCO (Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation), NeighborWorks Umpqua, and Portland Housing Center.
