Reaching the Dream of Home Ownership

Pathfinder Services HomeOwnership Center, a NeighborWorks organization, is a nonprofit, one-stop shop for homebuyers.Our mission is to help people with financial challenges set up and follow a plan to realize their dream of homeownership.

Created in 1997, Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center guides potential homebuyers through the entire process of pre-purchase, education, loan packaging, closing on the home, post-purchase counseling, and when needed, foreclosure prevention counseling. Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center gives people the confidence of knowing someone is in their corner from their first appointment until the day they get the keys to their very own home and beyond.
