(San Francisco, May 5, 2015)--At the Center we believe that creating and maintaining affordable housing is an essential part of supporting San Francisco’s vibrant and diverse LGBT communities. That’s why we are so excited about the construction happening right now at 1400 Mission Street which will provide 167 units of below market rate (BMR) housing for purchase. If you have been considering buying a home but are having a hard time finding anything affordable in the tough San Francisco real estate market this could be your opportunity.
Learn about the homebuying process, how to select a mortgage and what resources are available to first time homebuyers in SF.
Credit and debt are topics that tend to provoke anxiety because many people don't understand how credit works, the link between credit and debt and how each impacts our opportunities to borrow money, buy a car or even have a cell phone. In this workshop we will help you understand the origins of credit, show you ways to establish or repair your credit history, demystify the way loans work and charge interest and teach you responsible ways to borrow money.
This panel will focus on planning for financial wellness for seniors. The topics addressed will include savings and financial planning, including challenges faced by living on a fixed income.
