Unfortunately, more than half of homeowners facing foreclosure do not call for help when they begin to fall behind in their payments.
However, the early stages of delinquency are the most crucial—homeowners who are one or two payments behind are more likely to keep their homes than those who have fallen further behind on their payment schedule.
Advice for Avoiding Foreclosure
NHSGC is involved in numerous programs and offers many services to preserve the American dream of homeownership. To be effective and successful, the homeowner needs to do two things:
- Know whether or not they want to keep their home.
- Pick up the phone and make the call to:

- NHSGC offices at 216.458.HOME (4663) in Cuyahoga, Lorain, Erie, and Huron Counties
