Freddie Mac is teaming up with nonprofit organizations in the Atlanta, Las Vegas and Los Angeles areas to open walk-in Borrower Help Centers where delinquent borrowers can get free and confidential financial counseling designed to help them stay in their homes by pursuing mortgage workouts and avoiding foreclosures.

The organizations participating in the new walk-in Borrower Help Centers are the D&E Financial Education and Training Institute in Forest Park, Ga.; Chicanos Por La Causa in Las Vegas; and the West Angeles Community Development Corporation in Los Angeles. Freddie Mac launched its Borrower Help Center effort in 2010, opening centers in Chicago, Phoenix, San Bernardino, Calif., and Washington D.C.

"Freddie Mac's Borrower Help Centers are a proven tool for helping more borrowers stay in their homes and protecting more communities from the destabilizing effects of avoidable foreclosures," says Dwight Robinson, chief diversity officer and senior vice president of human resources, outreach and diversity at Freddie Mac.
