Gateway: Your Path to Homeownership

To help families navigate housing options and turn the dream of homeownership into a reality, Self-Help Enterprises, a HUD certified counseling agency, has launched the Gateway: Your Path to Homeownership Program.

Serving as a “one-stop” for families looking to start their housing search or to access one of Self-Help Enterprises’ homeownership programs, Self-Help Enterprises’ homeownership coaches will walk families through the different types of mortgage rates, the effect credit scores have on being approved for a loan, how much down payment is needed for purchase, and how much home is affordable. A tailored action plan will then be developed to assist families in achieving their financial homeownership goals. Individuals and families will also participate in an in-person or online homeownership education class, available in English and Spanish.

To get started, prospective homebuyers can contact Self-Help Enterprises via phone at (559) 651-1000 or via email at
