Foreclosure help set for Saturday

ATWATER -- A foreclosure workshop will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday in Atwater.

Counselors approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will be available to talk about a program to help people avoid losing their homes.

Officials with Fannie Mae, J.P. Morgan and Chase Bank will be on hand as well.

The workshop will be at the Atwater Community Center, 760 E. Bellevue Road.

A workshop scheduled for Saturday in Modesto has been cancelled because of a lack of lender participation. People are encouraged to go to Atwater instead.

The event is sponsored by Atwater and No Homeowner Left Behind, a coalition that includes state and federal officials and area nonprofits.

For more information, call (209) 726-5465.
