Let's Make a Plan Together

995HOPE offers free rental counseling and education to support people in addressing their housing concerns. Our professional, caring counselors will work with you to assess your situation, explain the options or solutions available, and help you create a detailed action plan. You will get referrals to local, statewide, and national resources.

Housing Counseling

Housing counseling from 995HOPE can help you manage unexpected circumstances, including lost or reduced monthly income, which causes changes in our ability to keep up with rent,  mortgages and property tax payments.

Housing counseling can be helpful to get a handle on your options when prioritizing monthly rent against other bills.

Our certified HUD counselors are ready to help you:

  • Know where and how to apply for help and assistance
  • Help create or facilitate communications with your landlord or property manager
  • Explore options to take in the face of financial hardship
  • Develop a plan for action that addresses your full financial picture

If you are struggling to keep up with your rent payments, there are steps you can take to protect yourself from eviction. Contact 995HOPE. Calls are confidential with no pressure.

While 995HOPE does not directly administer rental assistance, or offer financial support to homeowners, we can help you determine where to look for additional support. This includes connecting you to other agencies who may provide that assistance.

The NCOA Benefits Check Up site can search program that fit your needs and provides the program and contact information to those programs.
