What We Do

Breakthrough Community Services is committed to helping participants improve their credit, improve their housing situation and handle the responsibilities of homeownership. Our housing counseling plan aims to assure that homeowners have the tools necessary to become and remain financially stable.


The Program

All clients go through an initial intake with our Housing Counselor, who can determine which type of counseling would be most appropriate. To this end, our Housing Counselor develops a counseling plan detailing what steps will be taken to help the client reach his or her goal.
