The IMPACT! HomeOwnership Center was added in 1994 to meet the needs of first-time homebuyers and residents in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure, and it shortly thereafter became a HUD-Certified Housing Counseling Agency. The center today helps prevent foreclosures in Gwinnett County and greater Atlanta through group classes and free individual counseling sessions. The center also provides housing counseling, down payment assistance, and financial counseling services to first-time home buyers, current homeowners, and the general public in Gwinnett County and northeast Georgia.
