Pre-purchase Counseling

Pre-purchase counseling helps first-time homebuyers understand the home buying process and prepare for the responsibilities of homeownership.

Please note: To be eligible for funds through Maryland State and/or Baltimore City incentive programs, first-time homebuyers must attend a homebuyer education workshop and one-on-one pre-purchase counseling.

To schedule an individual session (via Zoom and/or telephone) contact Linda Lee at or 410-500-5309.

Foreclosure and Eviction Counseling

CHAI’s HUD-certified counselors are available to help you obtain the assistance you need to keep your home. Our counselors provide guidance to prevent foreclosure and eviction by explaining your options and helping you navigate complex processes including forbearance and mortgage modifications. There is no cost for these services.
