Foreclosure Hotline has busiest month ever

The Hotline ended the month of February 2009 with 4,502 calls, which is 600 more calls than the highest call volume since the Hotline was first announced and received 3,900 calls in October of 2006.

Naturally, the housing counseling staffs at the independent Hotline agencies have been swamped, and call-back times are growing. Hotline staff tells us, however, that this week, things have slowed down a little.

Fortunately, the Hotline network has also recently added more counselors.
