Homeownership Preservation

Our Homeownership Preservation Office works with community leaders, housing advocates, public officials, investors and, most importantly our borrowers to help homeowners to stay in their homes. We work with our colleagues across the industry to develop policies, practices and solutions to help sustain homeownership. Our staff will do whatever it takes to help our customers, during these stressful times in their lives.

The Homeownership Preservation Office:

  • has opened 30 Chase Homeownership Centers (CHOCS) across the U.S. with plans to open 21 more by March 2010. Find a Chase Homeownership Center near you.

  • has worked on industry-wide foreclosure prevention initiatives in Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, New York City, Indianapolis, Dallas and Houston as well as Colorado and Ohio.
  • facilitated foreclosure prevention training sessions to the non-profits and has trained more than 3,000 staff in non-profit agencies since its inception.
