image001

Green Bay, Wis. NeighborWorks Green Bay promotes homeownership by offering homebuyer education to its neighbors throughout Brown County.

It will provide nationally recognized homebuyer education workshops in September, offering classes in both English and Spanish. The “Realizing the American Dream” workshop teaches potential homebuyers how to become successful homeowners.

This course is open to anyone in who is considering buying a home.

There is a $25 book fee to participate in the class, and all classes are held at

NeighborWorks Green Bay, 437 S. Jackson St.

Sessions being held on the following days and times:

Homebuyer Education (English)                        Tuesday, Sept. 2nd and 9th from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Homebuyer Education (Spanish)                           Saturday, Sept. 6th,from   9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“Purchasing a home is probably the most important financial decisions that most of us make,” said Noel Halvorsen, Executive Director of NeighborWorks Green Bay.

“Yet, how much training do we really get to guide us through this process?”  The staff of NeighborWorks Green Bay helps to make the process go more smoothly through homebuyer education and counseling, and potentially providing assistance with down payment and closing costs.

“We welcome people at any stage of the home buying process to take one of our classes,” said Halvorsen.  “However, we really encourage people to contact us as early in the home buying adventure as possible.”

The homebuyer education workshop will assist participants in readiness to buy a home, assist them with budgeting, give them options for financing a home, help them to select a home, and provide them with the critical knowledge for maintaining their new home.

Potential homebuyers may be eligible for various forms of down payment and closing cost assistance through NeighborWorks Green Bay.  There are a variety of funding options, which may be available to people at all income levels, whether or not they are first-time homebuyers.

Staff of NeighborWorks Green Bay can discuss the criteria for these resources and how individuals and families can apply for them.  All down payment and closing cost assistance programs depend upon availability of funds.

Staff trainers of NeighborWorks Green Bay, a local nonprofit organization, have been certified through the NeighborWorks America’s nationally recognized Homebuyer Education program.

“Our goal is to help local families and individuals to buy homes and be successful homeowners,” said Halvorsen.

NeighborWorks Green Bay engages the community to promote homeownership and provide housing choices.  It strengthens neighborhoods and enhances neighborhood character in Green Bay’s original neighborhoods.  By building a better Green Bay, NeighborWorks Green Bay creates a stronger, more vibrant community for all of Brown County.   NeighborWorks Green Bay is part of a network of more than 235 independent, community based nonprofits through NeighborWorks America.
