HUD continues to fulfill its mandate to encourage homeownership retention and acquisition through the efforts of Intermediary Neighborworks America and its local affiliate Chelsea Community Developers in conjunction with HSBF and a host of viable faith-based partners. This collaboration with Faith-Based organizations through partnership with Homes Saved by Faith develops resources to assist residents of Mass in improving their housing situations. This is done through direct intervention and counseling in foreclosure, and by providing ongoing education and support for homeownership through financial literacy training.
FDIC MoneySmart curriculum will serve as the core curriculum for initial intervention by Faith-Based participants and NW America affiliates will address the next level of client need through homeownership education, financial literacy and/or foreclosure counseling.
