If you know a housing crisis is a month or two away, you have some time to plan. Start with the staff at your local Community Action Agency for ideas and suggestions to help you avoid trouble and stay in your current home.

Probably the biggest step you can take to handle a housing crisis is to cut your spending. With lower expenses, you may be able to find the dollars you need to pay the rent or the mortgage.

By focusing on expenses you can cut immediately—such as transportation and food costs—you may be able to address the issue before it becomes a problem.
