HFN, Inc. provides HUD/FHA approved homebuyer education in all our service areas. This is an 8 hour interactive course that helps families to prepare for the purchase of a home. Monthly classes in English and Spanish are scheduled at our HFN Education Center if purchasing in Clark County. Topics include the importance of good credit, how to shop for a loan, how to shop for a realtor, the closing process, and the responsibilities of homeownership including home maintenance and foreclosure prevention.

Counselors provide one-on-one counseling to help families become educated consumers who can determine whether and when homeownership is right for them. We also seek to assist clients address financial and other barriers to homeownership such as credit, saving, budgeting, employment, and establishing alternative forms of credit. All counselors are nationally trained and certified by NeighborWorks © America.

Currently, HFN, Inc. acquires and rehabs existing single family properties. The rehabilitated properties are then resold to eligible first time homebuyers. We ensure affordability by providing up to $35,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance through county HOME funds.

We use licensed, bonded contractors in both new construction and acquisition/rehab programs. All houses must meet industry standards prior to sale to a qualified buyer. All existing properties are covered by a one-year home warranty if acquired through the acquisition rehab program.

Within 12 months of close of escrow, our homeowners are required to attend six post-purchase classes, offered monthly on a variety of topics. HFN counselors also assist families with post-purchase counseling in areas such as default/foreclosure prevention, budgeting, and other miscellaneous problems that may arise as a result of homeownership.

Upon request, we can contract for services to other non-profit agencies to provide technical assistance in such areas as administrative systems, resource development, grant administration, client data tracking, program development and advocacy. Call the corporate office for more details on these services.
