SANTA ANA, Calif. (August 18, 2021) – The Orange County One-Stop Center has partnered with Community Housing Council (CHC) Southern California to provide housing counseling to homeowners and renters. As residents work through forbearance and rent moratoriums, this program intends to educate and empower prospective homebuyers, current homebuyers, and renters to make informed housing decisions.
A HUD-approved housing counseling agency, CHC helps hundreds of individuals and families with their housing needs. Housing counselors are experienced, trained professionals who work one-on-one with all ages to provide guidance on wherever an individual or family is in the housing process.
Examples of counseling include:

- Educating prospective homebuyers on how to make an informed housing decision and become “mortgage-ready”
- Informing current homeowners on their mortgage options and how to deal with default or foreclosure
- Informing current homeowners on how to protect their investment; and more
