But your staff worked very had with my mortgage company, a process at times woul be more challenging than I had imagine...Thank you for help in keeping my house, and for help in lowering my mortgage payment."

"Being desparate to save my home, I became a victim of a scam. Not only took my money, told me a bunch of lies, they disappeared out of sight, dissolving as if they had never existed in the first place. When I contacted Unity EDC, they immediately went to work, advising me on the process and status. I was a nervous wreck, sitting in their office, but they remained calm and even-kneeled, as they worked their magic. Although it is a non-profit organization, all of the Unity EDCs personnel work as if they are getting paid millions of dollars. Every day I awaken in my home, I give thanks to, and pray for those wonderful people who work so diligenly, and reach out to help those that are in despair and in need of a helping hand in times of crisis. Client, Clinton, MD
