Foreclosure Prevention Counseling

AAAH's Foreclosure Prevention Counseling Program supports homeowners in navigating the complex process of foreclosure. Homeowners facing foreclosure do not have to face this complicated process alone.

As we reach the expiration of COVID-19 foreclosure moratoriums extended in 2021, our homeownership counselors can help you navigate the challenges of bringing your mortgage out of forbearance and support you in considering your options moving forward.
