Freddie Mac Borrower Help Centers

What You'll Learn

  • Our Borrower Help Centers can help you prepare for successful, long-term homeownership
  • HUD-certified counselors can help you if you need help with your mortgage
  • If you do not have a Borrower Help Center near you, you can call our Borrower Help Network for help

Through our on-the-ground Borrower Help Centers and national Network, we work with trusted national nonprofit intermediaries to support Freddie Mac’s ongoing commitment of preparing homebuyers for responsible homeownership and helping struggling homeowners with Freddie Mac-owned mortgages avoid foreclosure.

HUD-certified counselors at our Borrower Help Centers and Borrower Help Networks will work with you to:

Prepare for Homeownership

  • Build important financial skills such as money management, credit, and responsible homeownership using the Freddie Mac CreditSmart® educational curriculum.
  • Learn the steps to sustainable homeownership through workshops and one-on-one counseling.
  • Compare the affordable features of various mortgage products – including lower down payments.
  • Provide information on down payment and closing cost assistance programs in your area.

Avoid Foreclosure

  • Explain, identify, and pursue your best foreclosure prevention option – working with both you and the mortgage loan servicer of your Freddie Mac-owned mortgage.
  • Help supply missing information and documents to move your application forward.
  • Provide holistic financial education counseling, including debt and credit management.
  • Inform you about Neighborhood Stabilization Initiatives that may be available in your area.
