AARP Foundation, in an effort to help seniors avoid foreclosure and remain in their homes, is connecting at-risk homeowners over the age of 50 to free HUD-certified counseling, resources and education through its bilingual Housing Solutions Center. Services are offered in English and Spanish and you do not need to be an AARP member to access assistance.
From 2007 to 2011, more than 1.5 million older Americans lost their homes as a result of the mortgage crisis and more than 3 million are at risk today.
Last year, AARP Foundation’s Housing Solutions Center connected more than 2,000 vulnerable older homeowners with free HUD-certified counseling and reached nearly 1 million individuals with resources and education to help them avoid foreclosure and remain in their homes.
