Foreclosure Prevention Counseling


Providing individualized, one-on-one counseling, Urban Edge staff members analyze the household’s budget and reviews options to prevent foreclosure. Some of those options include forbearance, loan modifications, short sales and buy-backs by Boston Community Capital.

In 2014, 89 homeowners have received counseling and 76 families have successfully avoided foreclosure. In 2015, 150 homeowners will receive counseling and 100 families will successfully avoid foreclosure, with the remainder still in counseling pending loan modifications.
