WEALTH AND HOUSING ALLIANCEThe UnidosUS Wealth and Housing Alliance was established to help increase Latino homeownership and wealth-building opportunities. The UnidosUS Wealth and Housing Alliance has been a HUD-funded housing counseling intermediary since 1997, providing services to Latino and low-income individuals and families in communities across the nation.

- Provided more than 850,000 households with housing counseling services
- Provided more than 434,000 households with one-on-one counseling
- Helped more than 33,000 individuals and families become new homeowners
The success of our network relies on the dedication and perseverance of many people who are passionate about their cause. The UnidosUS Wealth and Housing Alliance is made up of more than 50 independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Large or small, these groups are dedicated to providing vital housing counseling and education services to Latino and underserved individuals and families within their communities. As demand grows, so must our counseling efforts.
Our affiliate organizations provide pre- and post-purchase counseling, mortgage delinquency and foreclosure prevention counseling, as well as financial literacy, rental, disaster, and homeless counseling services that help build a more stable and productive community for all. Counselors are important independent advocates who work with their clients and with representatives of financial institutions to reach satisfactory outcomes whenever possible. Many individuals may need or choose to utilize these services over the long-term, and results are tracked and reported to HUD on a regular basis.
