The State Bar of California Brings Assistance to Struggling Homeowners

With the support of a grant from the California Bar Foundation and assistance from the State Bar of California, Office of Legal Services, Access and Fairness staff, the Public Interest Clearinghouse and the State Bar announced recently that, a central repository for public resources and attorney volunteer opportunities, has gone live. 

 This site has a host of services including: 1) listing agencies and organizations providing mortgage foreclosure assistance to consumers; 2) linking with listing the attorney volunteer opportunities available at legal services programs, HUD counseling agencies, local bars and LRS’s interested in using volunteer attorneys to address mortgage foreclosure issues on behalf of home owners and renters; and 3) providing consumer education on mortgages, loans and the foreclosure process.

Ideas for additional resources, should be directed to Siobhan Waldron, Public Interest Clearinghouse at
