Housing Services

At United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. (UCAP), we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing issues surrounding the housing crisis. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more about our programs and lend your support.

 

We provide homeowners with alternatives to help them prevent foreclosure. We help borrowers understand the importance of timely mortgage payments and to recognize the warning signs of mortgage delinquency.

We offer counseling in both groups and one–on–one sessions.

COUNSELING INCLUDES:

An initial telephone screening to determine the reason for default and past–due amount is required. 

 

One–on–one counseling will consist of:

  • A review of the Making Home Affordable screening

  • Documentation collection and consultation with Mortgage Company to determine repayment plans/negotiations

  • Budget counseling and money management tips

 

Group workshops will include:

  •  An in-depth look at Financial literacy and the foreclosure process.  Referrals are made if necessary. If default is not preventable and a foreclosure is foreseeable, the customer is advised on foreclosure procedures and alternatives to foreclosure (i.e. quick sale in lieu of foreclosure, deed–in–lieu, etc.).
