Lakeside's housing services program provides a range of housing counseling, information, and referral services to address the comprehensive needs of residents in the communities we serve. Our housing program operates on a model of continuing education, progressing from renting to buying to owning successfully, so that ownership leads to the creation of personal wealth and long-term economic security.
Lakeside provides an array of services and activities designed to help individuals and groups make informed decisions regarding their housing options. Services are available for:
First time homebuyers: Lakeside offers free group and 1x1 services to help first time homebuyers prepare for ownership. Lakeside staff are certified in home buyer education methods by NeighborWorks America.
Current homeowners: Lakeside offers free counseling for persons who own homes, including owners seeking to avoid mortgage default or foreclosure. For information on counseling programs for current homeowners, contact Susan deBeaubien, Intake Specialist.
If you are seeking housing or housing-related services, please consult our calendar to learn of upcoming workshops or contact our office to schedule an individual consultation. You can also complete a simple online inquiry form and someone from Lakeside will contact you.
Please note, Lakeside does not provide cash assistance or manage apartments for rent.
