As a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our mission is to foster community development and create and preserve affordable and diverse housing opportunities in Chicago through education, training, advocacy and development.
NCDC strives to meet the housing counseling demands of our turbulent economy. We have met the demand of struggling homeowners by increasing capacity to provide more foreclosure prevention counseling. However, we firmly believe that the best foreclosure prevention tool is a quality pre-purchase counseling program that encourages our clients to make sustainable homeownership decisions from the get-go.
We provide homeownership counseling in the following areas:
* One-on-one Foreclosure Prevention Counseling
* Pre-purchase First Time Homebuyer Training
* Pre-purchase Condominium Training
* One-on-one Mortgage Readiness Assessment
* Chicago Community Land Trust Training
* Anti-Predatory Lending Database file review
NCDC has carved out a niche market in providing Employer Assisted Housing consulting and counseling services. Through partnerships with regional employers we work to counsel participating employees seeking to purchase homes, and guide them through the home purchase process to closing. We currently provide EAH services for the Chicago Board of Education, City Colleges of Chicago, and Loyola University.
Through our wide range of services we serve clients of all types of racial and income backgrounds. We work with clients in all 50 wards of the city as well as suburban regions. We continue to maintain unique partnerships with public, private, and other non-profit agencies to expand our reach and further our mission.
