Foreclosure Prevention Resource Center
In 2007, community leaders and bankers started to see troubling conditions arising from subprime mortgages. In response, the Urban Affairs Coalition’s Community & Economic Development Department (CED) formed a Foreclosure Prevention Task Force that led to a set of 14 recommendations to guide the City’s response to the emerging crisis. One of these recommendations was to create a guide to help professionals and homeowners understand and prevent housing foreclosure. The CED team is pleased to announce the  2019 edition of the Foreclosure Prevention Resource Guide that includes useful and comprehensive contact information and walk throughs for individuals about how to prevent foreclosures. The download link for the guide is available on our website,
