A home is one of the biggest purchases most people will make in their lifetimes and is a key part of the American Dream, yet we are often unprepared for what happens after we purchase. Even with the best of planning and education (from our Home Buyer Education program of course!), things can still happen that put your home in jeopardy. No matter if you just purchased a home or you’ve owned your home for thirty years, we provide many resources for current homeowners to help you through the good and bad times.
Foreclosure Prevention Workshop and Coaching
In these turbulent economic times, many things can impact a household budget that can jeopardize a mortgage payment. Learn about the foreclosure process and how our home ownership services work at this one-hour workshop. The session will provide you with valuable information on what to expect, housing options and alternatives such as loan modification or reverse mortgages, and how we can work together to find solutions to get you through financial hardship and/or a foreclosure crisis. This class is required before working with one-on-one with our H.U.D. and NeighborWorks America trained coaching staff, as we provide valuable information that will prepare you for the next steps in this class.
