FREE Help for Homeowners in Danger of Foreclosure

Chillicothe, OH – As many Ohioans prepare for a festive holiday with family and friends, others are worried if this may will the last holiday they spend in their homes. 


Foreclosures remain at crisis levels across Ohio as unemployment and underemployment makes it difficult for homeowners to make ends meet.


But there is FREE help available!


Last year Ohio received $570 million dollars for a program called Restoring Stability.  The Ohio Restoring Stability program can give unemployed and underemployed homeowners up to $15,000 to help pay their mortgage.


ESOP is a non-profit, HUD-approved foreclosure prevention counseling agency.  We are helping local homeowners learn more about the Restoring Stability program and other options to save their homes from foreclosure.
