Counseling and 211 Services
HUD-Approved Housing Counseling
HUD approved housing counseling is a free service available to any homeowner. An approved counselor will talk to you individually and help you avoid foreclosure and understand Making Home Affordable programs. There’s no need to pay a private company for help.
Although it can be difficult to share your financial information, it’s important that you’re as honest and forthcoming as possible. The more complete a picture a counselor has, the more accurate the options he/she can offer you.
