Our First Time Home Buyer’s program (FTHB) will help you begin your new life in your first home. Available to Bedford county residents.

What is the First Time Home Buyer (FTHB) Program?

One of the needs we discovered on the road to self-sufficiency is struggling to purchase a home. Most individuals, couples, or families need help getting the down payment, covering closings costs, or paying the mortgage insurance. Our FTHB program assists with this process.

Down Payment

Purchasing a home is a big step on the road to self-sufficiency. Sometimes we all need a little help. The FTHB program can help you make a down payment towards your future.

Closing Costs

The term "closing costs" includes a variety of expenses above the purchase price of your property. We designed our program to help you cover these costs so you can take the next step to self-sufficiency.

Mortgage Insurance

Otherwise known as Homeowners Insurance, mortgage insurance is required by certain loans. We are here to assist you with the costs of mortgage insurance.
