I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
Yes, you do have recourse.
If the house was sold for more than what was owed on the house, you as the borrower/homeowner are entitled to the surplus after the expenses of the foreclosure sale have been deducted. You need to make a written request to the lender (through the trustee) for the surplus to be returned to you. If the lender ignores you, you can file complaint against the lender with Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and your Attorney General's office.
