This page is intended to highlight some of the more unique, needed efforts in housing assistance needed in the Lehigh Valley.
Mortgage Foreclosure Assistance #
Housing Counseling Program of CACLV: #
The Housing Counseling program of the Community Action Center of the Lehigh Valley (CACLV) is intended for low to moderate income families. It provides a “continuum of coordinated services in one location” in order to better meet their housing and consumer credit needs. There are two key features to the program: 1) home ownership counseling and 2) the more unique offering related to mortgage foreclosures. In that instance, the program’s housing counselors provide assistance to homeowners at risk of losing their home to sheriff’s sale using a foreclosure diversion program in the civil division of the Court of Common Pleas in both Lehigh and Northampton Counties.
North Penn Legal Home Ownership Services: #
Like CACLV, North Penn Legal Services provides assistance in preventing mortgage foreclosures when possible.
