The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), along with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA),

help others avoid it altogether.
The booklet is designed to provide homeowners with information
on how to keep their home. The booklet consists of a list of
government-based agencies and private lenders that can assist
at-risk borrowers. The guide will also help them identify resources
in the housing industry that have been created for the explicit
purpose of assisting struggling homeowners. The booklet contains
Web sites, phone numbers, and lists of individuals and institutions
that can help borrowers navigate through their housing issues.
