Nearly 1.6 million homeowners have received foreclosure prevention counseling from local nonprofits, national intermediaries and state housing finance agencies, according to nonprofit NeighborWorks America. The organization's National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling program shared updated statistics this week.

“Although the economy is improving, there are still many homeowners who need foreclosure prevention counseling and the NFMC program continues to assist thousands of families,” said NeighborWorks America CEO Eileen Fitzgerald.

“A homeowner who receives help from the NFMC program saves significant money and time and, importantly, often is able to remain in their home. The NFMC program has provided counseling in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. We’re proud to spotlight the excellence and perseverance of homeownership counselors in helping people to stay in their homes,” she added.
