Housing Counseling Creates Homeowners

Homeownership is a staple of the American Dream, but finding, buying, and maintaining a home can be overwhelming—especially if you never have before. Through programs like first-time homebuyer or foreclosure prevention, housing counselors and their agencies play an important role in helping Illinoisans find and keep good homes. This National Homeownership Month, we want to help you reach out to your community and spread the word about your housing counseling program.

This toolkit will help you promote the vital services you offer to your community. Pre-written social media posts, e-blasts, and ready-to-use graphics have been designed to make it easy for you to highlight your housing counseling agency’s programs. Download the full toolkit or just the parts you need. As an added bonus, we’ve created a special video explainer to help your online audiences understand what housing counseling is and if it’s a good fit for them.

Note: this kit is in Word Doc format—clicking the links below will send a document straight to your downloads folder!
