Free foreclosure classes offered

January 23, 2014

Facing a foreclosure is one of the most difficult and stressful things a person can go through, and unfortunately there are individuals and business out there that try to take advantage of people in crisis. TrueNorth, a privately funded nonprofit organization based in Fremont, is offering foreclosure prevention classes in Ludington beginning in February.

TrueNorth’s Center for Nonprofit Housing (CNH) provides confidential counseling at no cost to families who are facing foreclosure or experiencing a financial hardship that may lead to foreclosure. CNH works with families facing this crisis to help them understand all available options to prevent the foreclosure from occurring. Homeowners need to attend the class (one session only) and schedule a confidential and private appointment to speak with a housing counselor. CNH is certified by Housing and Urban Development and Michigan State Housing Development Authority government.

Headquartered in Fremont, in Newaygo County, these classes can sometimes prove to be difficult for people in neighboring counties to attend. To address this need, CNH has received a minigrant from Community Economic Development Association of Michigan to provide Foreclosure Prevention Classes “On The Road” in Mason and Lake counties once a month on a rotating basis for six months. These classes are free of charge, and the next one is scheduled for Mason County. The class will be held at the Mason County Department of Human Services office located at 915 Diana St. in Ludington, MI 49431 on Feb. 11, 2014 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

To sign up for the class please call (231) 924-0641, ext. 129 and specifically request the Foreclosure Prevention class to be held at the Mason County DHS Office on Feb. 11. You are also encouraged to visit www.truenorthservices.org for more information about CNH.
