CLEVELAND, OH – June is National Homeownership Month. Yet the foreclosure crisis has made homeownership a fragile prospect for many families across northeast Ohio.
In April there were more than 2,000 homes in foreclosure in Cuyahoga County alone. That is why local housing counseling agencies want to remind homeowners that there is FREE help available to help them hold on to their American Dream.
Throughout the month of June struggling homeowners can get free advice and assistance from local HUD-approved, non-profit foreclosure prevention counselors at special foreclosure prevention outreach events.
