Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A new one stop shop for housing assistance is opening in Tucson.

The Pima County Housing Center located on Congress Street just west of I-10.  Works with housing counseling agencies to help residents rent, buy, improve, and hold onto their homes.

"It's a bad time.  People are losing their homes, but it's also an opportunity for those that were priced out of the housing market to apply and try to see what's out there for home ownership," said Pima County Housing Program Mgr. Betty Villegas.

The center aims to help homeowners with mortgage modification and foreclosure prevention and provide access to various resources.
