FHCS provides free foreclosure assistance

Foreclosure is still a tremendous challenge facing many homeowners. If you are having difficulty making your house payment, the worst thing you can do is do nothing! There are options available that may help you save your home, but the longer you wait, the fewer options you will have.

In an effort to reduce the number of home foreclosures in our community, Fair Housing Contact Service provides free assistance to residents who are currently in foreclosure or may be in danger of defaulting on their mortgage. Our housing counselors are highly skilled, proficient and are passionate about helping you avoid foreclosure.

As a HUD approved housing counseling organization, we provide certified foreclosure prevention counseling to residents of Medina, Portage, Stark, and Summit Counties in Ohio. We offer a professional and private counseling setting and can help you in every step of the process. In line with our mission and vision, we want to help you avoid predatory situations and costly foreclosure rescue scams from companies who may want upfront fees to help you with your foreclosure.
