Come Tell Them Our Anti-Foreclosure Needs!

MA Should Make the Bank Sit Down with You!


Pre-Foreclosure Mediation in CT means 91% of Participating Homeowners Avoid Foreclosure!


Our Pre-Foreclosure Mediation bill requires that banks send an authorized representative to meet with you and a neutral facilitator face-to-face. The bank must give you an affordable loan modification if they show they lose more money foreclosing than modifying!

Cities/Towns Must Continue to Protect Us


from Foreclosure Damage




For more than 5 years, Worcester has made banks put $5,000 down for each home they start foreclosing. Lynn ran a very successful pre-foreclosure mediation program for months and made the banks rent to homeowners “post”-foreclosure. Springfield and Lawrence are ready. Other Cities/Towns want to pass protections for their residents too.
