SpringFour was founded when a community development professional with a passion for helping homeowners avoid foreclosure partnered with a Ph.D. who had spent 10+ years researching consumer behavior for the housing and mortgage industries.
Homeowners and mortgage servicers were asking how they could find quality local services to help deal with unemployment, rising expenses, and possible foreclosure. In response Rochelle Nawrocki Gorey and Dr. Michael Collins founded MortgageKeeper in 2005. 6 million referrals later, the company boasts a subscriber list of more than 30 companies and nonprofits.
Our data integrity team leaves no stone unturned. They exhaustively research organizations and products that have the best reputations. Those chosen for SpringFour must be experts in their fields and be extraordinarily responsive to the needs of their clients.

SpringFour features over 8,500 local services more than 25 resource categories covering every state. We provide a vetted set of services in nearly 200 MSA's. No other company offers such depth and breadth of updated solutions for consumers who need help managing cash flow and achieving their goals. We provide answers for everyone, regardless of where they live, adding more than 1,000 new resources each year, so consumers can get what they need, wherever they are.
SpringFour products offer consumers the help they need to get to the root causes of their financial challenges. With the connection to local services, cash flow is improved and financial emergencies are solved. In a survey of nearly 500 housing counselors, we found that consumers who use SpringFour products see a positive swing in their household cash flow; on average $250 in monthly savings.
SpringFour referrals also favorably affect loan performance. SpringFour worked with a long-time subscriber to perform a study that revealed that homeowners who received SpringFour referrals saw their loan performance improve. Within five months, 38 percent of the SpringFour-assisted loans were performing better, compared to borrowers who were not connected to SpringFour referrals.
