Seven years after the first signs of the Great Recession, we're still talking about people in trouble with their mortgages. 

And we're still talking about programs to help those homeowners.

The program was available only in the Portland metro area until recently.  We get the details from Neighbor Works Umpqua on how the program works, and who is eligible to make use of it.
