Foreclosure prevention counseling offered

Homeowners struggling to keep their homes can meet with mortgage company officials and housing experts to get personal advice and help at a free workshop this week in Miami.

The event will run 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at the James L. Knight Center at 400 SE Second Ave., Miami.

U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, from Florida’s 24th Congressional District, and the U.S. Treasury Department are hosting the “Help For Homeowners” event, which is aimed at helping provide homeowners information on avoiding foreclosure, including topics like mortgage principal reduction, refinancing, loan modification, and short sales.
