Mission

To provide housing retention advice to underserved low-income community residents. To provide the financial capacity education and tools needed to avoid Foreclosure and Evictions.

Notes from the nonprofit

"Hello to your Neighbor" has been AGORA's communication Tag Line since 2005, because we beleive that this is an important key to successfully restore community. When you buy a home or rent in a community, you become a part of that community and have responsibility to do your part to helping it retain and grow prosperity. Our Mission is to Counsel and Coach community residents who are challenged with housing retention, especially during an Post- COVID-19. With COVID-19 being a National Crisis, everyone has been affected and/or know someone who has. HUD Housing Advising has helped residents retain their housing or transition into alternative housing successfully, which means they are on the path to rebuilding their housing financial capacity. When re-entering the home ownership market, they are well-informed to avoid mortgage default leading to foreclosure and evictions. Residents & all other stake holders, please share the Free services of a HUD-Certified Housing Adviser.
