Foreclosure Prevention Counseling

As a non-profit housing counseling agency working in partnership with the Federal Government (HUD-approved), we provide individuals and families with the information and assistance needed to avoid foreclosure through loan modification, short sale, or refinance. As part of President Obama's comprehensive Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan (HASP), you may be eligible for a special Making Home Affordable loan modification or refinance, to reduce your monthly payments and help you keep your home.If you are eligible for the loan modification or refinance program, our counselors will work with you to compile an intake package.

Reverse Mortgage Counseling

Reverse mortgage counseling is provided for seniors 62 or older. The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is FHA's reverse mortgage program which enables you to withdraw some of the equity in your home into cash.

The HECM is a safe plan that can give older seniors greater financial security without selling their home or giving up the title. Seniors will not have to make any payments, instead the reverse mortgage lender makes payments to the Senoir Homeowner.
