In our more than 40 years of existence, the Community Development Corporation of Brownsville has helped thousands of families from the Rio Grande Valley on their way to homeownership. We have seen that one of the biggest hurdles in becoming financially stable is a poor understanding of credit. Misconceptions and poor knowledge on the effects of bad credit result in limiting people's choices when it comes to making purchases, obtaining loans, buying a house, renting a house and more.

We aim to help families make better financial decisions and achieve financial stability.

Four certified housing advisors/financial coaches are available to meet with current and prospective clients and work with them on creating budgets and financial habits that will lead them towards homeownership.


La Puerta's goal is to create financially healthy individuals and families.
