The Task Force's mission is to:

  • Recruit volunteer lawyers willing to provide pro bono and reduced fee legal services to individuals residing in the four Western Massachusetts Counties of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire facing the foreclosure of their owner occupied residences,
  • Provide training and educational programs to supplement and improve the professional skills of those undertaking the representation of homeowners whose residences are subject to foreclosure,
  • Develop a workable model for the delivery of such services and making the availability of such services known to those in need of such representation.

    If you are a consumer in one of the four Western Massachusetts Counties of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire seeking help in addressing a foreclosure issue, call the Foreclosure Hotline at (413) 322-7404.
