Roxbury nonprofit gets $20K to aid foreclosure prevention, counseling program

That Intern later became a “trusted staff member,” and Urban Edge has built on that early success by recruiting interns who are focused on foreclosure prevention and attend local law schools, churches and firms, officials said.

Interns at the nonprofit, including the four currently working there, are trained in the community developer’s policies, procedures and systems and are equipped to provide one-on-one, full-service counseling — from intake to resolution — for the homeowners assigned to them.

Since 2009, philanthropic arms of the New York City-based international financial services company have supported Urban Edge with a total of $90,000.

“This track record has made Citi the most consistent private sector funder of Urban Edge’s foreclosure prevention program and has helped provide the program the stability, quality and growth required to serve homeowners from every section of Boston and from dozens of other Massachusetts cities and towns,” the Boston nonprofit said in a statement.
