After a Foreclosure
After a foreclosure, you can begin taking steps to get yourself and your family moving forward to new housing and revitalizing your credit.
First, you may need to find temporary housing. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Housing Counseling can connect you with local HUD-approved counselors. They can help you find immediate and longer-term housing options.
Your other immediate need is your children. If you’re staying in a new area, get them enrolled in school as soon as possible. And check your city or state department of social services if you need additional support such as SNAP benefits (food stamps).
Moving forward both financially and emotionally will take time.
