AAAH is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, and a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency. AAAH provides housing counseling and homeowner assistance programs to African Americans and other underserved communities in Oregon.


Our counselors are NCHEC trained and certified, and have adopted the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling.


In addition to counseling we facilitate 8-hour Homebuyer Education Classes. Participants who successfully complete the Homebuyer Education Class will receive a Certificate of Completion.


Since beginning the classes in July 2005, approximately 1800 prospective buyers have received class certificates and are now better prepared for the home buying process!


In late 2008 AAAH was awarded a national grant through the State of Oregon to provide foreclosure prevention counseling. We have counseled over 3900 individuals facing foreclosure.


In late 2006 AAAH became a partner of the VIDA collaborative through Casa of Oregon to provide matched savings accounts for first time homebuyers. To date, 600 prospective homebuyers have opened an IDA Account and 92 graduates purchased a house.
