Education + Resources
Piedmont Housing Alliance offers a variety of services and opportunities for individuals to improve their financial health and get to a better place. Our Housing Counseling services fall in line with the organization’s overall mission to create affordable housing opportunities and foster community through education and lending.
Piedmont Housing Alliance’s team of Housing Counselors is excited to work with you. We offer individualized counseling services, financial and homebuying classes and workshops, fair housing education and more! Completing the Intake Form is your first step to working with a Housing Counselor. You can complete the form and return it the front desk at our offices located at 682 Berkmar Circle in Charlottesville. Once completed, your form will be evaluated and you will be contacted to provide more information or to set up your first meeting with a Housing Counselor.
Due to unexpected staffing changes, the intake process and wait times for an appointment with a housing counselor are currently longer than usual. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to serving you.
We offer the following one-on-one services. All meetings are by appointment for those individuals who complete an intake form and set up appointments with a Housing Counselor. All meetings are confidential.
- Foreclosure prevention
- Fair Housing Education
- Budgeting and Credit
- Landlord/tenant issues
Budgeting and Credit
If you need help planning out your monthly and yearly income, expenses and savings fill out and submit our intake form and a counselor will contact you to get started.
We can also help you understand what is in your credit report. You can bring a copy of your report from annualcreditreport.com to your first appointment or we can pull a report and FICO scores for you for a fee of $25 per report. If you need help building credit our counselors can also help you navigate that – no need to pay anyone to do this for you, we’ll teach you how to do it for free.
