Congressman Ander Crenshaw will host a homeownership promotion and foreclosure prevention workshop in Jacksonville

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ander Crenshaw will host a homeownership promotion and foreclosure prevention workshop on Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. to noon in the Grand Banquet Hall at the University Center at University of North Florida.

“Homeownership is a vital part of the American dream, but with it comes serious responsibility and significant obligation,” said Crenshaw. “Unfortunately, the recent economic downturn has left many with questions about buying a home and others with difficulty making their mortgage payments. This workshop will put them in touch with representatives from government agencies, legal counselors, and non-profit organizations that have helpful information on how to move forward. I strongly encourage those who are looking to purchase a first home, having difficulty making a mortgage payment or facing foreclosure to attend.”

The session is free and open to the public, and attendees are encouraged pre-register by filling out contact information on the special events section of the web site (www.crenshaw.house.gov) under constituent services. Those interested in attending can also feel free to contact Nathan Riska in Congressman Crenshaw’s Jacksonville office at 904-598-0481.

The “open press” portion of the program will begin at 10 a.m. with remarks from Congressman Crenshaw who will introduce representatives from the participating organizations: the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Jacksonville Urban League, WealthWatchers, Jacksonville Legal Aid, Three Rivers Legal Services, Operation New Hope, and Family Foundations.

The “closed press” portion will follow where participants will be able to meet one-on-one with participating agencies and have their questions and concerns addressed.
