Don’t Face Foreclosure Alone

Many homeowners facing foreclosure don’t know what to do, so they do nothing.  In reality, those who take action are more likely to achieve a positive outcome.  Don’t face foreclosure alone.  The sooner you act the better your chances are to stay in your home and save your investment.

A HUD-approved housing counselor can help you understand your options.  This service is provided at no cost to the homeowner.  Call Chautauqua Opportunities in Jamestown at 716-661-9430 or in Dunkirk at 716-366-8176 for more information.
