Here's a great story and tribute to the great state of Ohio!
Ohio is another state that's apparently fed up with Big Government and decided to take matters in their own hands. They are sponsoring a program to assist Home Owners who are facing foreclosure.
This program is called "Save the Dream"! an appropriate name (if i may say so myself).
One of the newest initiatives is to get volunteer, Not for profit Attorneys to give their time and consul to Home owners. Their goal is to give the best advise (case by case) on what their options may be. There are some guidelines that must be met, but other than that it's free. Ohio had a record number of filings in 2007 (83,000). So, hopefully this will make a difference and their efforts will be reflected by this years numbers.
I've been a proponent that if more people had information readily available, better choices would be made. I've written in the past about other state's attempt to make a difference and I hope more states will follow these courageous examples.
Imagine getting Attorneys to volunteer their "Time" to do such a noble thing!
The great State of Ohio (The President State) should be commended!
