The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), along with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), Fannie Mae and 13 historic African-American denominations, have created a helpful guide to assist families while they are going through foreclosure and to 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.
