No one in Texas should feel alone when trying to buy a home. The Texas Homebuyer Program values our housing counselors — our guides and partners — as important members of the support system we foster.
Join a team of trusted, educated guides that are putting Texans in homes. Our comprehensive training will give you the tools to guide first-time homebuyers to the rewarding destination of homeownership.
The Texas Homebuyer Program partners with NeighborWorks America, a nationally recognized organization, to administer Texas Statewide Homebuyer Education Program and to teach local nonprofit organizations the principles and applications of comprehensive pre- and post-purchase homebuyer education.
TSHEP also allows us to certify participants as providers. To date more than 730 individuals have been certified as homebuyer education providers by the TSHEP.
TSHEP is the only statewide continuing education program specifically for Texas housing and financial counselors.
