Community Classes

We host a variety of courses throughout the year. Click through the options below for more information on our community classes, courses, and other offerings. Click here for our full calendar of events. 

Our 8 hour, HUD-certified Homebuyer Education Course has been moved online temporarily due to the threat of COVID-19 to our community. 

Affordable Housing Info Sessions give an overview of homeownership opportunities through ALT. Attendees will get an overview of the program and have the opportunity to ask any questions and complete an application. We are unable to host in-person info sessions at this time due to the threat of COVID-19 to our community, and these info sessions will be hosted online via Zoom until it is safe to host public gatherings again. There is no charge to attend an info session.

Twice a year, we offer our Grow Your Business Course, a series of workshops designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their business and for existing business owners to grow their business. Our goal is to have registrants attend every workshop to take full advantage of this amazing FREE offering, as well as to develop a written business plan for their business. Workshops will be part-lecture and part in-class work to give attendees time to develop strong business plans and strategies.
