Find a Local Housing Counselor

Housing counselors are knowledgeable, dedicated, and experienced professionals who are certified and specialized in helping homeowners in various stages of the housing experience. You can meet one on one with a free housing counselor to discuss your personal situation and your loss mitigation options (steps to avoid disclosure). The counselor also can advocate on your behalf with a mortgage servicer. Search our full list of housing counselors by county

Legal Aid

The Oregon Homeowner Legal Assistance (OHLA) project provides free or reduced-cost legal services to low- and moderate-income Oregonians who may be at risk of losing their homes due to economic factors caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Homeowners can apply for legal assistance by calling OHLA toll free at 855-503-2598. Each applicant’s case will be screened for eligibility. Some eligible homeowners will receive services directly from OHLA, while others will be referred to attorneys who will offer a free initial consultation. Those attorneys will then provide legal services at a reduced cost as agreed to with the homeowner. OHLA conducts interviews for assistance between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and can assist borrowers in English and other languages using interpreters.
