State Launches New Foreclosure Prevention Counseling Awareness Program, WNHS Local Contact

Non-profits across the state have been contracted to provide free, confidential services to anyone currently facing foreclosure or who could be on their way toward foreclosure. On September 17, 2012, Oregon Housing and Community Services launched a new website as a ‘one-stop shop’ on the web for information about foreclosure, prevention options, and mediation. The website can be searched to find a free housing counseling in your local community.

Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services has been contracted to provide these services in Linn and Benton Counties. WNHS has two office locations so that we can provide assistance to people in the communities where they live. Our main office is in Corvallis at 257 SW Madison Avenue. This office is open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm. We also have an office in Lebanon where we meet with clients by appointment. Additional information about our foreclosure prevention services is available on our website.

For more information about our foreclosure prevention services or to schedule an appointment with one of our Certified Housing Counselors, please call our office at 541-752-7220 ext. 300 or email us. For general information about the foreclosure process, options to avoid foreclosure, or to locate a housing counselor outside of Linn and Benton Counties, visit oregonhomeownersupport.gov.
