One on One Financial Counseling

A HUD-approved housing counselor can play an important role if you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments and may be facing foreclosure. HUD approved counseling agency staff must possess a working knowledge of HUD housing programs (including public housing), the housing programs available in the community, and the local housing market.
A housing counselor will help you assess your financial situation and offer
specific suggestions on what you should do, free of charge.
A housing counselor can:
  • Review your financial situation and help you plan a budget and spending plan;
  • Help you to contact your lender or loan servicer and prepare a “hardship letter” that explains your situation;
  • Identify what workout options are available and the option that is best for you;
  • Explain the terms of any refinancing or other options to you.

For more information please call 207-645-3764 to set up an apointment with a Housing Counselor.

Beware of scams. If someone contacts you and offers to help save your home, be very cautions. Learn more
