HOPE NOW Military Outreach
In 2012 & 2013 HOPE NOW partnered with several military bases to help military families and veterans avoid foreclosure. A series of mortgage assistance programs were now recognizing Permanent Change of Station as a hardship. This adjustment helped many families qualify for mortgage relief. HOPE NOW spear headed an effort to promote the changes and raise visibility with personnel.
We had two central goals:
Goal: 1. To assist servicers in connecting with military families in distress over their mortgage.
Goal: 2. To educate the military and stakeholders for all foreclosure prevention options.
The tactics included:
- Leverage the military network personnel to promote efforts
- Leverage non-profit partners
- Provide all mortgage solutions (modifications, forbearance, short sale discussions, etc.) on site
- A minimum of four events in 2012
