Facing Foreclosure?

If you find that you are having trouble paying your mortgage, or if you are in foreclosure, you need to call for help. Free counseling assistance is available to struggling homeowners regardless of income.

The Treasurer, in collaboration with the Board of Commissioners and County Prosecutor, created the Homeowner Helpline. Calling HandsOn Central Ohio at 211 will connect you to a local non-profit housing counseling agency that can determine what type of help is best for you.
