Houston Area Urban League

Affiliated with the United Way and National Urban League, Houston Area Urban League (HAUL) strives to enable African Americans and other minorities to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights. As part of its efforts, HAUL offers first time homebuyer classes, foreclosure prevention counseling, credit counseling program, and one-on-one housing counseling. These different services enable area residents the opportunities to qualify for down payment assistance and Individual Development Account programs with other non-profits. In 2010, HAUL helped nearly 400 potential homebuyers with homebuyer education and more than 300 with one on one mortgage default counseling so that these families could stay in their homes.
