Do you want to own a home one day?

Many families in Hawai’i experience one or more obstacles to becoming homeowners.

Which ones affect you? 

• My income is too low compared to the high cost of housing

• I have too much debt, credit problems

• I don’t have the money for a down payment

• I don’t know where to get accurate and reliable information

• It feels hopeless – I can’t imagine ever becoming a homeowner

The Hawai’i HomeOwnership Center offers services to all interested home buyers in Hawai’i.


Why should you come to Hawai’i HomeOwnership Center?

At the Center, we will provide you with all the information and services you need to become a homeowner – all in one place.

You will attend a free, one-hour orientation session that will give you an introduction to the benefits of homeownership, and describe how our services help our clients.

Our clients have purchased single-family, multi-family, condominium and townhouse units. Families planning to build a home can also use our services.


What services are offered by the Center?

How much will these services cost?

The one-hour home buyer orientation session is free to all interested home buyers.

If you are interested in taking the next step, you will be asked to fill out an intake form and submit additional documentation and pay the $60 lifetime membership fee. All classes and one-on-one coaching are included at no additional charge.*

What is the Hawai’i HomeOwnership Center?

Our mission: The Hawai’i HomeOwnership Center will provide education, information and support to create successful first-time homeowners in Hawai’i. By addressing barriers and increasing rates of home ownership, the HomeOwnership Center aims to build stronger families and communities throughout the state of Hawai’i.

Our vision is to substantially increase the number of successful homeowners by reaching out to low- and moderate-income families who never believed they would become homeowners. However, our services are available to anyone regardless of their income.
