Summit County Foreclosure Assistance Clinic

Attention Homeowners:

Help is Available to Save Your Home from Foreclosure

The County of Summit Office of Consumer Affairs and Veterans Service Commission urge homeowners from any county who are having difficulty making their mortgage payments or facing foreclosure to attend the Foreclosure Assistance Clinic which will be held on Thursday, August 30, 2012, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Representatives from Bank of America, Chase, GMAC, Huntington, New York Community Bank and Wells Fargo will be available to meet with their borrowers. The clinic is free, open to the public, and will be held at:

Veterans Service Commission
1060 East Waterloo Road, Akron, Ohio 44306

For those homeowners whose mortgages are not with one of the participating servicers or lenders, local housing counseling agencies will be available to offer assistance and see if they qualify for Ohio’s Restoring Stability program and its funding. In addition, residents can meet with a local credit counselor to discuss budgeting or debt management, or pick up pamphlets covering a wide variety of programs regarding veteran services, property taxes, weatherization, emergency notification, medical or legal help, consumer scams, and more. 

Future clinics are scheduled for September 20, and October 4. To find out which lenders will be in attendance at each clinic, please contact the Office of Consumer Affairs at (330) 643-2879.

Remember, you should never pay for assistance in saving your home. There is genuine help available, but you must reach out.

For more information on this or other types of consumer issues, please contact the Office of Consumer Affairs at 330-643-2879 or visit our website at
