Thousands of Arizonans are facing difficult times. Amidst higher prices at the supermarket and the gas pump and out-of-control credit card debt, many are also dealing with the very real possibility of losing their homes.
The Arizona Department of Housing has partnered with several agencies throughout the state to help individuals and families facing foreclosure. Community Information & Referral hosts the Arizona Foreclosure Hotline to help people through the foreclosure process and possibly keep their homes.
What will the foreclosure counselors do for me?

Where can I find information about home loans and foreclosures?

You can find all that information and more including links to local housing counselors on their website: www.hud.gov
What about Making Home Affordable Refinance and Modification Options?
The federal government's plan to help up to 9 million homeowners keep their homes might work for you. Visit Making Home Affordable to see what help is available to help avoid or successfully work through foreclosure.

How can I help others to get help with their foreclosures?
We're looking for people to volunteer with us as Mortgage Foreclosure Hotline Specialists. Qualified individuals would be asked to work at least 4 hours per week during the Monday-Friday 8am-5pm work week. Duties include acquiring information from callers, collecting and recording data, searching for an appropriate counseling agency from an approved list, then transferring callers to live counselors for help.
