Help available Friday and Saturday for avoiding foreclosure

With foreclosures still at abnormally high levels in metro Atlanta, here’s an event that might help some homeowners at risk of losing their houses.

A free “Help for Homeowners” event on Friday and Saturday will give homeowners a chance to meet with their mortgage company and a government-approved counseling agency to try to work out a solution and avoid foreclosure.

The event is being sponsored by the federal government’s Making Home Affordable Program, HOPE NOW Alliance and NeighborWorks America.

It will take place at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park.

On Friday, help will be available from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, the sessions will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information on the government’s program, including what documents to bring, please go to the link provided here.
