The Foreclosure Prevention/Housing Advisor works to build healthy communities and expand homeownership opportunities and retention for low and moderate-income households in Philadelphia. The Advisor’s goal is to provide city-wide residents (including aspiring homebuyers and struggling homeowners) with the skills, knowledge and information to buy and maintain a home, to provide energy assistance, and to resolve emergency housing situations.
