Welcome to the Counselor Corner

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.
