Foreclosure Prevention

Foreclosure Prevention Resource Guide & Workshops

The CED Foreclosure Prevention Resource Guide is designed to help professionals assist their clients in navigating the mortgage foreclosure process relevant to the Philadelphia five-county region. The Winter 2016 Guide and additional brochures are available in both print and online on our Foreclosure Prevention Resource Center website at

The CED Department also offers speakers to community organizations, church groups, and senior citizens centers to address the topic of how family and friends can help others save their homes from foreclosure.
