2008 and 2009 HOPE NOW Events


HOPE NOW Alliance Homeownership Preservation Workshops

The Homeownership Preservation Workshops are key outreach initiatives designed to allow homeowners at risk of foreclosure an opportunity to meet with their mortgage servicer and a local foreclosure counseling organization face-to-face for free.

Since March 2008, over 51,000 families have been assisted via the face to face efforts of the Alliance.

NeighborWorks America has served as a key partner in all our outreach efforts. Recently Making Home Affordable and HOPE NOW have aligned efforts to assist more distressed homeowners. The strength of partnerships is key to our outreach success and HOPE NOW partnerships have included local non profit counselors, elected officials, Federal Reserve Banks and local task forces.

New challenges bring new approaches for 2010. New efforts include: enhanced technology, strong front end education to assist and prepare homeowners to meet with their servicer and tailoring efforts to meet market demands.
