Foreclosure Counseling Information

Today families must be prepared for the responsibilities and burdens of owning a home and since our beginnings in 1978, local NeighborWorks organizations have provided education and counseling that ensures families will sustain and protect their homeownership assets. In 2004, we turned our expertise to the growing number of borrowers facing foreclosure, and today we are recognized as the leading face-to-face foreclosure intervention counseling program.

The NeighborWorks Center for Homeownership Education and Counseling

The NeighborWorks Center for Homeownership Education and Counseling (NCHEC) is the arm of NeighborWorks America which qualifies homeownership professionals through continuing education, certification, tools and resources. NCHEC provides training courses for foreclosure intervention counselors including: lending basics, foreclosure, predatory lending, counseling, forclosure intervention and more.

National Industry Standards for Foreclosure Education and Counseling

Through NeighborWorks’ leadership, the National Industry Standards for Foreclosure Education and Counseling have been established to provide nationally-accepted criteria for measuring the highest level of quality foreclosure education and counseling.

Homeownership counselors and educators play a vital role in building strong communities. Unifying the industry on the issue of education and counseling standards is the first step to achieving that goal on a national level.

The National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling have drawn upon a variety of sources, including existing standards used by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local, regional, and national housing counseling organizations.
