Homeownership and Strong Financial Health for life

Since 2005, our 888-995-HOPE (4673) hotline has been serving American consumers as an unbiased, trusted resource for housing counseling.  Since 2007, when the HOPE hotline was selected to administer the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Making Home Affordable program, more than two million homeowners have come to know and rely on us.  In 2015, in response to market need, our 844-995-HOME (4663) hotline counselors began to coach consumers on how to strengthen financial health before purchasing a home.  We’re dedicated to providing best-in-class housing counseling or coaching programs supported by cutting-edge technology. Every business day, more than 1,500 people now approach our hotlines so that they may continue to enjoy the benefits of home.

With plans tailored to meet individual needs

Homeownership Preservation Foundation (HPF) believes that long-term behavioral change is achieved when consumers are “taught to fish, rather than given fish to eat.” Our network of independent, unbiased, HUD-approved housing counselors use a coaching philosophy tailored to meet your individual needs. Our counselors act as coaches to encourage and motivate you with customized solutions, helping you develop a personal financial management plan by navigating an award-winning, digital money management app — BluePrint by HPF — online or on your mobile device.  We want to help move you more quickly toward your financial goals.
