There can be several ways that you have to choose from. Both the federal government as well as Ohio government have foreclosure prevention programs in place that may be able to assist you in keeping your home.

    The Ohio government brings you programs such as their Compact to Help Ohioans Preserve Home ownership, which was the first of its kind in the nation, signed last year.
