List of Free HUD Certified Foreclosure Counselors in the St. Louis Region
(Information Provided by the St. Louis Foreclosure Task Force)

Homeowners are not required to contact a housing counselor or bring a counselor to St. Louis County Foreclosure Mediation Program. However the Counselors would like to make you aware of housing counseling resources in the area. A recent report by University of Missouri St. Louis’ Public Policy Research Center concluded that families facing foreclosure who received foreclosure counseling were 60-78 percent more likely to avoid foreclosure than those who did not receive counseling. A housing counselor can help a homeowner review options and help communicate with the lender about options. In the case where the loss of a home may be unavoidable, housing counselors can help that family cope and consider ways to gracefully exit their home with the least amount of damage to credit and quality of life.

If you so choose to request the assistance of a counselor, below is a free, alphabetized list of HUD Certified foreclosure counselors that may be able to assist you in mediation. Please note: there is limited capacity for housing counselors in the region. If you already have a housing counselor, please keep and contact the existing counselor you are already working with. Thank you.
