LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Today NeighborWorks Laredo announced that it has received $28,980 to support Laredo’s foreclosure prevention counseling efforts.

The much-needed funding will enable NeighborWorks Laredo to provide more foreclosure counseling to area homeowners in danger of foreclosure. While the pace of home foreclosure has lessened nationally, many homeowners in our community/state continue to face serious mortgage payment issues.
