Foreclosure Help from CITH

Foreclosure proceedings are an issue in many tribal households. Just like the rest of the nation, our Cowlitz Tribe has members suffering from layoffs, and BAD LOANS! One option being used more and more is: Throw in the towel on your huge mortgage and start over at today’s home prices. We can help you clean up your credit and purchase a home at TODAY’S prices. CITH was able to buy a few homes in various counties for our Home Ownership Program with an ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) grant. Our carpenters have done some remodeling and minor fixing up of the homes to make them ready for qualified tribal members that wish to become Home Owners. Available homes are listed below.

Please Call Sheryl Bertucci at 360 - 864-7019 for more information.
