  • Description

How do you reach the people at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure -- before it's too late? Too many homeowners don't reach out for help soon enough. Whether due to fear, embarrassment, or lack of knowledge about the alternatives, delay can make the difference between renegotiating a mortgage on workable terms, or losing a home. The following case studies, focusing on outreach to niche communities, provide organizations with new tools and strategies. Each case study describes a real organization addressing the real challenges of reaching various constituencies they serve. Each includes a summary of lessons learned and who to contact for more information.
