A free workshop to help prevent foreclosures will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Friday at the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College located at 600 N. 21st St. in Superior.
Participants will be able to meet with nonprofit housing counselors to have their situation evaluated and to learn what options they have when they meet with their lenders. Lenders will be available to suggest ways to alleviate delinquencies and to offer mortgage options.
Professionals in the housing industry also can attend and receive free training that’s accredited for Minnesota realtors.
The event is a collaborative effort between the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development and various community and social service organizations, state and federal agencies and lending institutions.
“With local foreclosures continuing, and mortgage ‘rescue’ scams on the rise, more and more homeowners are looking for legitimate assistance and additional resources to help them avoid losing their homes,” Jim Chaplin, HUD’s field office director in Wisconsin, said in a statement.
Participants will receive help on a first come, first served basis.
For more information or to jump-start the process of getting free, professional assistance, call Sheila Ashley at HUD’s Milwaukee field office at (414) 935-6603 or Anita Olson at HUD’s Minneapolis field office at (612) 370-3000, ext. 2289.
