Keeping Your Home: Getting Mortgage Help

Are you facing foreclosure? Do you understand the foreclosure options? Did you know that you have options to help you stay in your home?

Take Root Milwaukee provides free and confidential resources to help you stay in your home. Through our trusted participants:

  • There is never a charge for foreclosure counseling.
  • It is always confidential and free of charge.
  • Foreclosure counseling is not reported to any credit reporting agency and will not impact your credit score.

The Take Root Milwaukee Hotline connects you with non-profit housing counselors who can provide information on your options when facing foreclosure. Counselors can also act as facilitators for communication between your lender and you. You could be faced with serious federal tax consequences and future credit problems if your home is lost due to foreclosure. It is important that you understand your rights and your options. This testimonial video featuring a client from one of Take Root Milwaukee's counseling agencies will give you a glimpse of how they can help you with your mortgage situation.

If you are in any of the following situations, we encourage you to call the Take Root Milwaukee Hotline at 414-921-4149.

  • If you have not yet missed a mortgage payment but are concerned that you may miss future payments.
  • If you are already behind on the payments.
  • If you have received a notice of foreclosure.
  • If you are having trouble communicating with your mortgage lender.
