What is a Housing Counselor?

A housing counselor is a trained professional who understands the complexities of financial hardships. A housing counselor assesses your situation and provides advice for your particular circumstances. These professionals are part of counseling agencies sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

A housing counselor can provide expert help with:

  • Providing a personalized financial recovery action plan
  • Assistance with debt relief including bills, credit cards, and rent or mortgage payments
  • Applying for local and national assistance programs
  • Working with your mortgage servicer or landlord
  • Ongoing financial coaching for up to 12 months to help ensure a successful recovery
