Pontiac, Michigan -- The next "My Home – My Future" home ownership retention workshop will take place Nov. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Dublin Senior Center, 685 Union Lake Road, White Lake.
These workshops are free and open to all Oakland County homeowners. It is the last of four workshops held in the county this year.
Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson initiated free foreclosure intervention and prevention seminars to help families protect their most valuable asset, their home. Preventing foreclosure and its negative impact on Oakland County families and communities is important to county and community leaders.
"Losing a home due to foreclosure not only displaces a family, causing extreme distress, but it has a detrimental impact on a family's finances, including the loss of earned equity, damaged credit, and other monetary losses,” Patterson said. "Whether at these workshops or the Community & Home Improvement office, we want to do everything we can to help families keep their homes."
A housing counselor, certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Michigan State Housing Department Authority, provides information on 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 sponsored by Patterson, the Community & Home Improvement Division and the following Board of Commissioners: Beth Nuccio (District #1), Bob Hoffman (District #2), Thomas Middleton (District #4), John Scott (District #5), and Jim Runestad (District #6).
