MEDIA CONTACT: Julie Willmot
TRENTON, N.J. -- Many people who are facing foreclosure can get easily overwhelmed and believe nothing can be done to salvage the situation. Millions of families have struggled through similar difficulties these past few years. Every situation is different, but there are a range of options for people in various stages of the process, whether they are struggling to make payments or are behind on payments.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, the Mercer County Division of Consumer Affairs and the Affordable Housing Alliance will present a free workshop for people seeking help for their mortgage woes from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Mercer County Connection in Hamilton. Topics to be covered include: Options when you are behind on your payment, foreclosure timeline, “lis pendens” notices, assistance programs, loan modification and mortgage scams, meditation programs, sheriff’s role in foreclosure, and life after foreclosure.
Panelists will be Stefanie Kavookjian Wynne, MSW, Affordable Housing Alliance; Donna Giovannetti, Chief, Mercer County Consumer Affairs; Paula Sollami Covello, Mercer County Clerk; and a representative from the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office.
Mercer County Connection is located on Route 33 at Paxson Avenue, in the Acme Shopping Center. The program is free, but seats are limited. Please call 890-9800 to reserve your seat.
