Almost Home

Financial empowerment program

We receive hundreds of applications for our Home Buying and Critical Home Repair programs, but often families are not yet financially stable enough to qualify. Habitat MontDelco’s Almost Home program aims to help families across Montgomery and Delaware County become financially stable.

If you’re a prospective home buyer, a homeowner struggling to maintain your home or a family looking to break out of the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, Almost Home may be for you. The program is free and open to all residents and free childcare and meals are offered during each class. The program runs for 8 consecutive weeks.

Overall behavior change, not small, quick fixes

Overall behavior change, not small, quick fixes

Almost Home focuses on overall behavior change and helps families set goals, learn skills and change financial behaviors.

We establish a supportive class environment in which families motivate each other and hold each other accountable. In addition to group classes, each family has a financial coach to help create an individual success plan focused on the family’s financial and housing goals. The coach meets with families for a minimum of four hours over the 8-week course and continues for five to six months after the classes are over.

Topics in Almost Home include budgeting, credit, cash flow, debt, project management, dealing with legal issues, planning for retirement, managing student loans, purchasing insurance, writing a resume, obtaining employment and buying a home.
