Foreclosure Forum with Congressman Keith Ellison

Monday night October 5th, the Minnesota Home Ownership Center and its network of foreclosure prevention counselors were invited to participate in a public forum hosted by Representative Keith Ellison entitled "The Foreclosure Crisis: Identifying Problems and Sharing Solutions" that was held in Minneapolis.

The first hour of the forum included a resource fair where dozens of struggling homeowners were able to speak with the non-profit foreclosure specialists to help them determine their next steps.

During the next two hours, consumers and constituents heard from the Congressman, State Representatives, Housing Counselors and even lenders about what is being done to help struggling Minnesota families.
