Worried about foreclosure? You don't have to leave your home to reach out for help.
Officials from the Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland launched a Web site to allow residents to fill out information at their convenience. The information is then forwarded to housing specialists at the HUD-certified counseling agency, who then meet with residents to discuss their options.
"We were seeing a need to reach people who generally didn't know there was help available," said Lou Tisler, executive director of Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland. "There was a reluctance to make the call, so we thought we'd make it as user-friendly as possible."
