Supporting, Informing & Connecting People in Foreclosure
Important Contact Information
for National, State, County, and Local Government Agencies
(see below for all of the contact info)
There is a need to make phone calls, write letters, mail or fax them, and send emails more so now than ever before with all of the changes happening with the FORECLOSURE CRISIS! This Blog Post is meant to make it easier for all of us by listing many of the most important government and other agencies we should be contacting (see below for all of the contact info). I suggest you print out a real-paper copy of it and keep it handy (you never know when your computer may have trouble allowing you to access your info).
You can make contact by ANY or ALL of these:
Phone calls, Emails, Faxed Letters, Real “snail mail” Letters
…they are all good! Keeping a copy of what you send is good, too. You never know when you may be able to re-use a letter or email for another contact! I recommend using ALL of the above avenues of contact to ensure they get the message one way or
When writing to Government Officials and Agencies, Offices, etc, remember this saying:
“Honey attracts bees better than vinegar.” and
"The shorter the letter, the more likely it is to be read and remembered"
