Pittsburgh mortgage assistance.

If you need help with your mortgage in Pittsburgh, there are several Allegheny County foreclosure prevention programs and resources that you can contact. Homeowners have toll free phone numbers and hotlines that they can call for information and advice, and there are also several non-profit HUD approved housing counseling agencies across the Pittsburgh area.

The non-profit mortgage and housing counseling agencies can offer borrowers a number of solutions, many of which are free or low cost.
