HopeNow Event - Partnerships are the key
As frequent readers of this blog know, The Minnesota Home Ownership Center and Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis are joining with two national organizations, HOPE NOW and NeighborWorks America, to bring a large-scale foreclosure prevention workshop to the Twin Cities later this week. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, June 4th from 2:00 - 8:00 pm at the St. Paul RiverCentre.
This is the first time the Center has partnered with the HopeNow Alliance, the Fed and NeighborWorks America to bring a large-scale foreclosure prevention workshop to the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.
The Center believes that MN Homeowners are best served through collaborative efforts like the HopeNow workshop - and the great working relationship our counselors have with local, regional and national lenders/servicers. Our 2008 Foreclosure Counseling report shows that through our collaborative efforts, thousands of Minnesota families where able to avoid foreclosure. To view this report, click here.
Many times lenders are seen as the bad guys - just waiting to get their hands on 'the little guys' home... (Click here for an extreme example) and don't receive enough good press about their efforts for working collaboratively with organizations like the Minnesota Home Ownership Center. The Center applauds all efforts undertaken for the good of Minnesota homeowners! For a complete list of the lenders and servicers that will be attending the event on Thursday... click here.
