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.
In Texas, NeighborWorks organizations helped save 1,830 families from foreclosure. In Laredo, 138 families were helped from 2009 to 2013. In 2013 alone, 25 families were provided counseling through this program by NeighborWorks Laredo and of that 12 homes were saved.
