Falling behind on loans is sometimes inevitable for some homeowners. Now a new partnership between Ocwen Financial Corporation and Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust (BNT), a non-profit organization that provides an array of services in the Bridgeport community, aims to educate families who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments by discussing loan modification options that can help them catch up.
Homeowners who attend the event will meet one-on-one with Ocwen Home Retention Agents and housing counselors from Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust, a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-approved counseling agency. Homeowners will have the opportunity to discuss their unique situations and receive information about potential options to lower their mortgage payments to make their homes more affordable.
“Ocwen is focused on helping as many families as possible stay in their homes and remain a part of their community,” said Jill Showell, SVP, Government and Community Relations at Ocwen. “Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust has a deep commitment to the city, and we are excited to join forces to help homeowners in the area find a responsible mortgage solution to better afford their homes and build a stronger community.”

We are pleased to have the Ocwen team working one-on-one with local homeowners to help them explore available options to avoid foreclosure and remain a part of Bridgeport.”
