The American dream of homeownership is not without its challenges and we are here to help homeowners stay in their home. Each year we counsel over a thousand households, helping them to avoid foreclosure by establishing realistic repayment plans with their lenders. Our Reverse Mortgage counseling allows cash-poor elderly residents to draw on the equity in their homes to make repairs and enhance limited incomes. If you own a home and have a question or concern about keeping your home making it better, please call and ask to speak to the Homeownership Hotline Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.
