Foreclosure Prevention

We are part of a collaborative partnership of agencies serving Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties. The partnership has a single mission: to help homeowners avoid foreclosure. All services are free and confidential.

Springfield-based Way Finders serves as the administrative agency. You may be able to meet with their staff at our office in Turners Falls.


Homeowners facing foreclosure may also be eligible for assistance through The RAFT Program 

HRA can provide one-on-one budget counseling as well.
