Welcome to Oakland

Since 2004, the Oakland HOPE Financial Dignity Center has provided on-the-ground, in-person support to people looking to take back their lives by getting their financial house in order. We are there every step of the way as renters become homeowners, small business dreamers become small business owners and the hope-less become the hopeful.

Here at the HOPE Center, you will receive one-on-one counseling to remove whatever challenges you face in your goal to get your credit back on track, buy a home, stave off a foreclosure, grow your small business and more.

Your first step to get started with most of our programs is to attend a workshop. After the workshop you will be assigned a counselor that will guide you on the road to financial freedom.  RSVP for an upcoming seminar here!

Please also visit our Guidance and Resources section, where you can find basic answers to frequently asked questions about credit, homeownership, taxes, small business, and insurance.

Our number one goal is to turn you into a stakeholder. We are here to help!
