According to a recent article is DS News, NeighborWorks America , a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit , has announced the awarding of $44.8 million to various organizations in the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling program to help distressed families and individuals whose homes are facing foreclosure. While foreclosure numbers have declined significantly since the peak years of 2010 and 2011, a recent uptick in foreclosure starts demonstrates the need still exists for loss mitigation programs and non-profit expertise. Home Means Nevada is another unique non-profit / governmental partnership created to assist struggling homeowners. Home Means Nevada is a Nevada State affiliated nonprofit organization established for the development and execution of homeowner assistance and outreach programs and events to address the challenges and needs of distressed homeowners. Joining the broadcast to discuss the expanding role of non-profits in the mortgage industry is Anna Zakowska, CEO of Home Means Nevada. Anna launched the Nevada Home Retention Program designed to assist those individuals and families at risk of losing their homes who have not been helped by other housing programs.
