The workshop will be held at the Mercer County Connection in Hamilton from 10:30 a.m.-noon on Thursday, Oct. 10.
The session will focus on helping residents who have fallen behind in their payments, as well as foreclosure timelines, “lis pendens” notices, assistance programs, loan modification and mortgage scams, meditation programs, sheriff’s role in foreclosure and life after foreclosure, officials said.
The workshop is designed to help families decide whether or not they are at risk and realize possible solutions, according to Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes.
“This will be a face-to-face meeting with people you can trust, and I encourage you to attend. Please, don’t ignore this problem,” Hughes said.
Scheduled panelists include: Stefanie Kavookjian Wynne, MSW, Affordable Housing Alliance; Donna Giovannetti, Chief, Mercer County Consumer Affairs; Paula Sollami Covello, Mercer County Clerk; and a representative from the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office.
The workshop is free, but space is limited, officials said. Reservations can be made by calling 890-9800.
The Mercer County Connection is located on Route 33 at Paxson Avenue, in the Acme Shopping Center.
