BIRMINGHAM, Ala. –Homeowners concerned about the pressure of meeting monthly mortgage payments and small business owners desiring legal strategies will get valuable advice thanks to two free workshops taking place at the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) downtown.

The first workshop, “D&E’s Foreclosure Prevention Workshop: Preserve Your Home,” will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 3-5 p.m. in the Linn-Henley Research Library, 2100 Park Place. This workshop is designed for homeowners fearful about losing their residence due to foreclosure.

The workshop will provide information about home retention, foreclosure options, and special programs offered to Alabama homeowners. In recent years, the Obama administration has implemented a number of initiatives to assist homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure and otherwise struggling with their monthly mortgage payments. The majority of these programs are administered through the U.S. Treasury Department and the Housing and Urban Development (HUD). So, empower yourself and your community by learning more about your options regarding foreclosure!

Established in 2000 and headquartered in Forest Park, Georgia, D&E, A Financial Education and Training Institute, Inc. is a nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) HUD-approved counseling organization that is dedicated to developing and empowering communities by working with individuals and families to provide access to financial education, resources, and programs. D&E’s team of banking and financial industry professionals believe that by giving people the knowledge and tools to make better financial decisions, they can positively impact the foreclosure crisis.
