Free Credit Workshop

Credit Matters Part 1 Workshop

SFHDC Financial Empowerment Center is inviting you to spread the news about our popular credit workshop hosted every first Wednesday of the month at our main office. Join us or tell someone who may need to learn about how to build, manage or restore your credit!

This event is free to attend.

See details below for this event:

Date: September 5, 2018

Time: 5:30-7:30pm

Place: SFHDC MAIN OFFICE

4439 3rd street @ La Salle

San Francisco, CA 94124

We do charge $25 to do a soft-credit pull for educational purposes (optional) if you would like our credit counselor to annotate your report.

* This will not adversely affect your credit score since the report is for educational purposes.

What are the benefits of having a great credit score?

  • Lower interest rates
  • Lower move-in deposits for rentals
  • More options/purchasing power
  • Higher likelihood of securing an apartment or home for rent
  • Save money in the long run!

i.e. A car loan of $15,000/72 months @

(Bad Credit Score)17% = $24,026 total loan payment

vs

(Good Credit Score) 2%= $15,930

See the difference?

Knowledge is power! Come get some!

Noreen Beiro joins SFHDC Board

Ms. Beiro, who has extensive real estate asset management and lending and portfolio management experience, has begun serving as the newest member of SFHDC’s Board of Directors. Since 2010, she has served as the director of asset management at Enterprise Community Investment – a leading provider of low-income housing tax credit equity – identifying and resolving problems related to construction and equity agreements, and providing regular analysis of financial performance and site visits. She previously was interim president and chief operating officer/executive vice president of Citizens Housing Corporation, a nonprofit affordable housing developer.

“I am impressed with SFHDC’s mission and commitment to San Francisco’s underserved neighborhoods, including the Western Addition, where I’ve lived for over 20 years,” Beiro said. “I am hopeful that my professional experience in affordable housing finance and development, as well as my prior board experience at other nonprofit housing organizations, will allow me to be a strong contributor on the SFHDC Board.”

ABOUT US

We provide a platform, tools, and support to connect homeowners and home seekers.

Below you will find a fantastic housing opportunity. Please read posting carefully and only respond if you meet the guidelines. Happy house hunting!


Room with a view

Interested in gardening? Want to share a home with a community-oriented and peaceful Bayview resident? Home Match SF may have just the right opportunity for you!

What: A garden-view room in a two-bedroom, 1 bathroom home in the Bayview. The owner is a male and his block recently won an award for “greening” the area. The home is two blocks from the T line, has street parking and a washer and dryer. The room is furnished and looks out to a lovely garden in the backyard. The home could be a great fit for someone who likes to garden.

Costs: $1,000 a month with utilities included. Move in fee of $3,000, which includes first month and last months’ rent as well as a $1,000 deposit.

Homeowner: Health-oriented, tidy and peaceful male who is very active in the Bayview community.

Who you are: This room is for one person (male) only: a man who is quiet, calm, responsible and neat. You are likely a student or working professional. You are respectful of the home and garden. You have occasional visitors (e.g., once per month) do not smoke, play loud music or wear shoes in home.

As a part of the Home Match SF program, you must earn less than $74,600 per year and agree to background check; home owner and home seeker will exchange references. There is no fee for our service.
