Home Purchase

Helping You Achieve Your Home Dreams

SJCS promotes a holistic approach for homeowner’s financial stability that combines financial and homeownership education classes with personalized counseling. SJCS offers a two-step process for prospective homebuyers that the Homebuyer’s Academy and counseling in both English and Spanish. SJCS is a HUD-approved housing counseling agency and offers HUD-certified classes.

Homeowner’s Academy is a series of classes that teach prospective homeowners about budgeting, credit, mortgages, the homeownership process, neighborhood involvement, home maintenance and financial stability.

One on One Counseling with one of our counselors completes the SJCS home purchase process. A housing counselor is available anytime through the homebuying process to assist you with obtaining your dream home.

The cost for both the Homeowner’s Academy and One on One counseling is $55 for an individual and $80 for a couple. This cost covers a credit check and course materials.

If you have any questions regarding the homeowner’s process, please contact Jim Roche at (856) 966-8117, extension 232. SJCS staff is available to answer your questions about owning a home or participating in SJCS’s homeowner education classes.
