Foreclosure Prevention HOME Clinics provide free action-based counseling and education at county libraries to people facing bankruptcy and foreclosure. The San Diego County Library partnered with a local nonprofit to offer these clinics that rotate to different libraries throughout the county. Clinics offer one-on-one meetings with a volunteer attorney or credit and/or mortgage counselor. Attendees receive up to two hours of free counseling. The clinics also offer educational sessions on credit management, mortgage loans, bankruptcy and consumer protection. The partnership has offered more than 30 clinics in the past three years, providing more than $2 million worth of free advice. More than 2,500 individuals have attended the clinics. It has brought vetted experts and the trusted name of the library together to guide homeowners through tough times. This program is already being replicated in other counties, and it has been recognized nationally for its innovation and effectiveness.
