Alliance Community Services
Alliance is deeply involved with financial literacy, savings programs, homebuyer education classes, and foreclosure help to the Charlotte community, annually providing around 500 financial workshops and seminars to more than 10,000 attendees. Many of these are hosted at many of Charlotte’s best-known and most-respected non-profit organizations, involving those receiving needed services, or other constituents, including members of the general public.
Our goals with these activities are to foster increased financial literacy generally among the members of the community, and to provide personalized counseling and assistance to those seeking help from the organization referring the client to Alliance. We also accept professional referrals and self-referrals from those needing our services.
There are six programs that channel these efforts. Each program has dedicated staff and resources to help make Charlotte an even greater place to live.
Savings program with focus on the Charlotte area. Financial workshops to motivate and assist the public to begin saving and building wealth.
Workshops and seminars with topics pertinent to the particular audience, be it human services non-profits, local universities, secondary schools, community organizations and staff training for for-profit sponsors.
HUD approved homebuyer education classes are held multiple times monthly to prepare for Charlotte residents for buying homes in Charlotte.
Community meetings held weekly at our office to assist those facing home foreclosure. Alliance is HUD authorized and offers ALWAYS FREE assistance to all homeowners seeking to avert foreclosure.
In conjunction with the NC Housing Finance Administration, we counsel and assist homeowners in Charlotte and the surrounding area with a mortgage payment program for those who qualify, which is primarily targeted at the unemployed.
