Credit counseling help for home mortgage troubles

Posted: Updated:

Even though a poll shows that many Americans say they believe the national economy is improving, here is Metro Atlanta, homeowners are still in jeopardy of losing their homes.

And, she's not along. Statistics show that Metro Atlanta is still struggling.
