The path to homeownership usually begins with an assessment of eligibility and credit through one of our non-profit agency partners. Our partners are as follows:

  • Central Florida Community Development Corporation

  • Mid-Florida Housing Partnership, Inc.
    1834 Mason Avenue
    Daytona Beach, FL 32114
    Phone: (386) 274-4441


These agencies will conduct:

  • Pre-screening and pre-qualifying for eligibility
  • Credit assessment and counseling
  • Homebuyer education classes
  • Interim assistance during the qualification, home-buying and construction processes
  • Post purchase counseling subsequent to occupancy

In addition to providing homeowner education classes, these agencies help clients identify barriers to home ownership and build a plan to overcome them. Once their homeowner education classes are completed, clients will receive the certificate of completion, but may still have to work on credit or other barriers. Clients must be able to qualify for their own mortgage.
