About eHome America

eHome America's Purpose

eHome America was designed to help more people obtain Certified Homebuyer Education. Many people have a difficult time getting to their local NeighborWorks® Chartered Member office for in-person counseling, for reason such as work schedules or babysitting issues. This online version helps individuals get the education and certification that they need at their convenience.

Though this online course can not replace in-person homebuyer counseling we believe that participants can gain a thorough understanding of the homebuying process.

Each participant in this course will be directly connected to a NeighborWorks® Chartered Member, often to a member in their area. This ensures that participants continue to receive the one-on-one counseling they need over the phone or in-person while receiving their certification online.

How eHome America was Developed

eHome America was developed as a partnership between NeighborWorks America® and Community Ventures Corporation (CVC), a NeighborWorks® Chartered Member based in Lexington, Kentucky.

This program was developed around the "Realizing the American Dream" educational text, created by Neighborworks® America. From this content, numerous educational videos were produced along with interactive forms and other downloadable materials. All items in this program are designed to enhance understanding of the homebuying process, from start to finish.
