Foreclosure Prevention Program: Helping Cancer Patients Keep Their Housing Stable
Since 2017, with funding from the Legal Services Advisory Committee, Cancer Legal Care's work on behalf of our low-income homeowners facing cancer has resulted in 96% of these clients avoiding foreclosure. We view our assistance in this realm as contributive, meaning that legal care is likely one of several avenues of help and assistance that brought this result about. We know that when we are able to help our clients maintain their employment by better understanding their rights, by making timely and well-plead applications for disability, and by making sure they are receiving all of the benefits to which they are entitled, their income in stabilized and they are in a better position to maintain their housing. We also know that sometimes our clients need our help in negotiating with their mortgage company. Legal care is here.
