Organization: Texas Foreclosure Prevention Task Force
Main Office: Texas – Statewide
The Texas Foreclosure Prevention Task Force is a statewide network of individuals and organizations working collaboratively to avert home mortgage foreclosures and the impact of foreclosure on Texas families and communities. Assembled in 2007 by NeighborWorks America, the Task Force represents over 100 local, state, federal, nonprofit, private, public and philanthropic organizations along with lenders and servicing entities.
Drawing on resources from other states, the Task Force produced the Texas Foreclosure Intervention Resource Guide. The Guide, available in both English and Spanish, has been widely distributed across the State.
In Summer 2010, the Task Force, along with the FDIC, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation and others sponsored two Loan Scam Community Summits, the first in Houston, the second in Dallas. The Summit highlighted the cost of foreclosure scams, the resources available to Texas homeowners facing foreclosure and a call to action to prevent further abuses.
