Pontiac, Michigan -- Another My Home - My Future Home Ownership Retention Seminar has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Farmington Hills Costick Activity Center, 28600 Eleven Mile Rd. (between Inkster and Middlebelt) in Farmington Hills. This meeting is free and open to all Oakland County homeowners.

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson has initiated free foreclosure intervention and prevention seminars to help families protect their most valuable asset, their home. The impact of rising foreclosures on Oakland County families and communities is of great concern to county and community leaders. Besides losing earned equity, damaging credit and other monetary losses, losing a home to foreclosure and displacing a family causes emotional, physical and psychological distress.

Topics at this seminar include loan modification programs, alternatives to foreclosure, Michigan's foreclosure law, Michigan's Hardest Hit Program, and how to find assistance when you need it.

This event is hosted by Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Commissioners from the Southwest quadrant, including Kathy Crawford, Bill Dwyer, Marcia Gershenson, Christine Long, Jim Nash, John A. Scott, Shelley Goodman Taub and Philip Weipert, as well as the Cities of Farmington and Farmington Hills and the Oakland County Community & Home Improvement Division.
