As National Homeownership Month comes to an end, we are thrilled to congratulate Daniel Burnham, one of our very own housing counselors, who was named the 2012 Homeownership Preservation Foundation (HPF) Counselor of the Year.
Over the last several years, HUD-approved housing counseling organizations like MMI have provided effective foreclosure prevention counseling to millions of struggling homeowners.
In fact, according to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), recent studies have demonstrated that struggling homeowners who receive housing counseling are 67 percent more likely to remain current on their mortgage after receiving a loan modification than are non-counseled borrowers.
These studies demonstrate the important role that housing counseling agencies can play in assisting the nearly five million homeowners who are delinquent on their mortgage or already in foreclosure.
In the last year alone, HPF received more than one million calls from homeowners across the country. And, according to HPF, “It is because of compassionate, professional counselors like Mr. Burnham that so many homeowners are able to reach a sustainable solution and avoid foreclosure.”
April is Financial Literacy Month, and this year we're encouraging you to share the wealth for a chance to win big!
One in four Americans has more credit card debt than emergency savings, according to a new poll by Bankrate.com.
Studies showthat 21 percent of Americans — 38 percent of those with incomes less than $25,000 — think that winning the lottery represents the most practical way for them to accumulate several hundred thousand dollars.
According to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), 64 percent of Americans would have to go into debt or sell off possessions to cover a $1,000 emergency, due to lack of savings.
It’s startling numbers like these that inspired America Saves Week, a national campaign aimed to encourage individuals and families to build wealth by saving money. Because most Americans today are not saving adequately for retirement, and most lower-income households do not have adequate emergency savings for unexpected expenditures, the message accompanying this national movement is needed now more than ever.
It’s no secret that tough economic times can make saving difficult, which is why America Saves Week 2012, running Feb. 19 to Feb. 26, is focused on a simple set of instructions that – if followed – can make anyone a successful saver. The instructions may sound basic, but they are the foundation for financial success: Set a goal. Make a plan. Save automatically.
Knowing what you want to save for, how to achieve it and then making the savings process automatic will allow you to reach your savings goal. Visit AmericaSaves.org to find more information about America Saves Week. There, you can find savings strategies and you can take the pledge to become an American Saver.

Remember not to stress too much over the details. Sit back and enjoy yourself — it is a party afterall. And even if your team doesn't win, at least you'll know you've won big by pulling off a bash without breaking the bank. So start practicing your endzone dance now!
