Workshops and Counseling  

“HAC was almost my legal advisor. If they weren’t there, the banks would have ignored me. It was life changing. It’s great to know my family can stay in the house we love.”
Jonathan Way, author and Osterville resident

HAC is one of nine regional Housing Consumer Education Centers in Massachusetts (HCEC). HCEC is designed to help people with housing problems find the appropriate assistance. It provides a variety of workshops, services and materials designed for all types of housing consumers and providers, including tenants, homebuyers, homeowners and owners of rental properties.

Among the popular classes HAC offers are “Rebuilding Your Credit,” “Homebuyer Education” (for first-time homebuyers) and “Home Forever” (for new homeowners).

In 2008, HAC started a Foreclosure Education and Prevention Center, where our experienced staff members respond to the increased need for counseling services that can help homeowners at risk of foreclosure. Since 2008 more than 3,000 households have received foreclosure counseling.

**IMPORTANT: You must pre-register for classes at least one week in advance.

HAC’s Housing Consumer Education Center is located at 460 West Main Street in Hyannis. Our services are available by walk-in, phone 508-771-5400 or email hcec@haconcapecod.org. For additional information and materials click www.masshousinginfo.org.
