Housing Counseling

Provides one-to-one counseling to seniors contemplating Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM).  These are commonly known as “reverse mortgages”

Additionally, in response to the recent housing crisis, we are assisting homeowners in delinquency to apply for the state’s Homeowner’s Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program (HEMAP) and the federal government’s Home Affordable Mortgage Program (HAMP).

Through partnership with Lackawanna Neighbors, We provide One-to-one pre-purchase counseling for families who are purchasing rehabilitated homes in designated blighted areas throughout Lackawanna County.

Services are available through the Scranton (570-207-2283) and Stroudsburg (570-476-6460) offices
