HopeNow Borrower Workshop - Resource Listing
As we've stated in other blog posts, the Center is proud to participate with the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank (Fed), NeighborWorks America & the HopeNow alliance to co-host a foreclosure prevention workshop in St. Paul.
As a reminder, the workshop will be held at the RiverCentre in St. Paul on June 4th.
In addition to the 'standard' resources available at a HopeNow event... where homeowners who are either falling behind, or in danger of falling behind, on the mortgage can speak one-on-one with their servicer or lender - AND - speak with a non-profit housing counselor, the St. Paul event goes one step further.
At the event, while homeowners are waiting to speak with a counselor or their servicer, they will be able to visit a resource fair as well. Resource providers include agencies and organizations that can assist distressed homeowners with repair/rehab issues, energy assistance, taxpayer services, employment assistance, food assistance and many others.
For a complete list of resources, visit the HopeNow Event page of the Center's website here.
The page also lists additional information about the workshop... including a list of non-profit counseling agencies that will be participating. A list of all lenders and servicers will be included as soon as it becomes available.
