HUD Conference: Families Facing Foreclosure with Facts, Not Fear

Paula Lincoln, Acting Director of the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships at HUD, speaks at the podium during the "Families Facing Foreclosure With Facts, Not Fear" event. March 23, 2011.

These days as families struggle with their finances, many will look to the faith-based community for answers because they don’t know where else to turn. For this reason, it‘s imperative that those of us at HUD equip faith based leaders with the information and resources they need to assist families facing foreclosure.

On March 23rd, HUD’s Center for Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships hosted a foreclosure prevention conference, “Families Facing Foreclosure with Facts, Not Fear.” Participants learned about ways to prevent foreclosure, avoid scams, and how to become a HUD-approved housing counseling agency. Mortgage lenders were also on hand to provide participants with a clear understanding of their role and how they can help during the foreclosure process. Faith-based leaders were also provided with a Toolkit on Foreclosure Prevention and Scam Awareness to use as a guide to further help raise awareness in their communities.
