Free and Reliable Help Will Be Offered on August 4th Milwaukee – People in the Milwaukee area who face the possibility of losing their homes to foreclosure can get free and reliable assistance at the upcoming Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event. The event takes place on Thursday, August 4th from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm inside the Bruce Guadalupe Middle School at 920 South 9th Street in Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event is sponsored by both the City of Milwaukee and Take Root Milwaukee, the city’s leading consortium working to prevent foreclosures and promote homeownership. “Often, homeowners nearing the possibility of foreclosure are unaware of help that’s available. This upcoming event is the best way for people to get information and take action so they can resolve a difficult situation,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. “We want to keep all our neighborhoods as strong as possible, so preventing avoidable foreclosures is a priority.” While the rate of foreclosure filings is slowing, there are still thousands of people in our area who could benefit by participating in the Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event. Event participants will have the opportunity to speak with area lenders and local housing counselors who will be on hand to conduct loan workout sessions, offer mortgage refinance options, and provide information about financial literacy programs. There is no charge for participating in the Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event. More information is available by calling Take Root Milwaukee at 414-921-4149 or online at www.takerootmilwaukee.org. Take Root Milwaukee provides free or low-cost, confidential assistance to help you purchase and keep your new home, or help you find alternatives to foreclosure. Take Root will connect you to professional, established nonprofit organizations right here in Milwaukee – people and resources you can trust.
