Foreclosure Prevention Clinics

The Center’s foreclosure prevention clinics in Hartford and Fairfield County are open to any homeowner facing foreclosure. No pre-registration is required. There is no charge.

Clinic participants receive information about the judicial foreclosure and mediation process, guidance on how to prepare and what documents to bring to court, and information about resources available to homeowners.Each clinic includes materials and, often a presentation by a representative, from the State of Connecticut Department of Banking.

All participants receive a copy of the Center’s publication, “Representing Yourself in Foreclosure: A Guide for Connecticut Homeowners.” Participants also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with volunteer attorneys and paralegals to discuss their situations.
