Phoenix Area Residents Helped by AARP Foundation Mortgage Assistance Program

The AARP Foundation is helping homeowners fighting to save their home from foreclosure, through a federally backed Mortgage Assistance Program.

Some 40,000 older homeowners living in high foreclosure areas of Phoenix and Las Vegas are receiving calls from AARP volunteers asking whether they need financial guidance. The volunteers provide information on resources, connecting those who fear foreclosure to HUD-certified housing counselors.

“Through the program, AARP Foundation volunteers hope to help people who are on the verge of losing their home by providing resources and contacts,” said AARP Arizona Communications Director Cynthia Fagyas.

The program also offers help finding a job and information about the flood of scam artists posing as housing counselors who are charging excessive fees.

To date, the AARP Foundation’s Mortgage Assistance Program in Maricopa County has contacted more than 14,000 older consumers in the Phoenix area.

Review the presentation Know Your Options For Arizona Homeowners to find out how to work with a housing counselor to understand the options that are available if you are struggling to stay in your home.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the AARP Foundation at 800-635-1402.
