Avoid Losing Your Home in Prince George's Co.

I was asked to pass on this news:

       The Prince George's County Home Ownership Preservation Coalition, a group of counseling agencies, government, lenders and advocates joined together this spring to address the skyrocketing threat of foreclosures in the County. The Coalition announces the launch of a series of nine two-hour workshops to explain how people can avoid losing their homes because of late payments. Workshops are called: Under a Shadow; Dealing with the Threat of Foreclosure. 

Three September workshops are planned:  Housing Initiative Partnership, (HIP) will present the first workshop at 7:00pm on September 13th at the Hyattsville Municipal Building. The Municipal Building is located on 4310 Gallatin Street, Hyattsville, MD 20781. On September 20, Sowing Empowerment & Economic Development (SEED) will host the second workshop. SEED is located at 6200 Riverdale Road, Riverdale, MD 20737. KAIROS will host the third workshop on September 27. You can find KAIROS at 5601 Old Branch Avenue, Camp Springs, MD 20748. 

There is no charge for the workshop. The focus of the workshop will be to provide information to homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments or are anticipating that they will soon be behind. The workshop will answer questions such as: What happens when you miss your mortgage payment? What should you do? 

All workshops will be on Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Pre-registration is required. To reserve a seat call Prince George's County's Homeownership Center at 301-883-5570.

Schedule of future workshops are below.
