Help Avoiding Foreclosure Available Friday and Saturday | Housing
A group of housing organizations are banding together to host a foreclosure workshop.
Residents facing foreclosure can receive help during a Home Rescue Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Palace Station Hotel Casino, 2411 W. Sahara Ave., inside the Grand Ballroom.
Residents will be able to take advantage of face-to-face sessions with loan specialists, housing counselors, and attorneys, as well as take part in informative workshops. In addition to one-on-one meetings with lenders, attendees will also benefit from resources available where they can gain helpful information from a number of local services in areas such as education, job placement, and public benefits, among others.
The event is being organized locally by Housing For Nevada and nationally by the Alliance for Stabilizing Communities, which is a national partnership including the National Urban League (NUL), National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and the National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (National CAPACD), with the support of Bank of America. The city of Las Vegas is one of the sponsors of the event, which is designed to provide homeowners facing financial hardship with the resources they need to help them stay in their homes.
