Housing Retention provides mortgage assistance and counseling to Philadelphia homeowners who are behind on their mortgage. It can help them resolve an immediate housing crisis and hopefully prevent homelessness. Congreso and Dixon House provide services that include assisting homeowners workout ways to save their home from foreclosure, providing financial assistance to bring the mortgage current and advocating on their behalf at court and Sheriff sale.
Congreso’s Theory of Change is designed to help the organization enhance, maintain and improve the effectiveness of its services. Its goal is to alleviate poverty in families by increasing their economic status through the achievement of education credentials, employment, social and health barrier removal, and cultural identity. Congreso believes that sustainable change occurs when we invest in addressing the underlying cause rather than the symptom.
