Zombeck founded Home Preservation Network (HPN) in an effort to educate and inform the public about issues relating to foreclosure and the financial crisis in America, and to expose the individuals and entities that are working against the public interest.
The HPN community provides resources in the form of information, news articles, homeowner stories, vetted service providers, foreclosure advocates and journalists. Several of the most knowledgeable and well respected experts collaborate on HPN in a single collective effort to assist and educate homeowners and consumers.
Additionally, HPN provides resources and potential solutions to homeowners faced with foreclosure and issues relating to foreclosure.
