Housing Opportunities Collaborative
Volunteer Attorney
- Current
Activities: The economic jolts of the last two years have hit working class homeowners hardest. Lured into purchases of homes they could ill afford, with unconscionable marketing practices of aggressive mortgage lenders, many of those homeowners cannot afford the monthly payments and face foreclosure now that those loans have adjusted. Worse, an unlicensed cottage industry of "foreclosure consultants" has emerged, offering the promise of help, while simply selling more loans, deeper debt, and more misery. With local volunteers, HOC offers help to those who have been victimized.
