Strategy 4: Starting Over After Foreclosure Toolkit

The Great Recession prompted increased job loss and housing instability. In support, local agencies offered foreclosure prevention assistance. However, after services, resources to assist become limited. Qualitative findings revealed the need to understand the household experience and identify situation appropriate supportive resources. A free online, research based, educational toolkit was developed to aid recovery. This eight unit resource includes credit rebuilding, the emotional aspects of housing instability, and housing options after foreclosure. A complementary, online, self-paced course is in development and will be released in 2016. This session will highlight both resources and provide an implementation strategy to reach families.
