We would like to thank our sponsors!

There are two major tracks of the day: Pre-Purchase and Foreclosure Prevention.
All sessions are free and open to the public!

There will also be tables of different lenders present to speak with guests and attendees to educate them on different topics of the home buying process. The Foreclosure Prevention track will consist of three, hour-long workshops as well, and will have numerous lenders to conduct on-site underwriting of files of homeowners facing possible foreclosure. The counseling agencies will be present to run the event and assist in the document preparation before seeing an underwriter for review of the file.

Thank you so much to our partners and sponsors!
