It’s a first for the city of Detroit — immediate financial help for homeowners facing foreclosures. Five non-profit organizations have received federal funds to help make payments on behalf of Detroit residents behind on their mortgage.

Reverend Maurice Rudds with Project L.I.V.E. is one of the five non-profits involved with the program.

“This is legitimate effective help coming out of the city of Detroit. And, although there have been some negative things being said about Detroit, this is a program that actually works,” said Rudds.
