The City of Milwaukee joins Take Root Milwaukee to invite people area residents who are facing foreclosure to a special event this week. Attendees will receive free and reliable assistance at the upcoming Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event.

Event organizers, along with Alderman Michael Murphy, will highlight the opportunity at a news conference on Wednesday, October 9 at 8:30 a.m. The Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event will take place on Thursday, October 10, from 1:30 until 7:30 p.m. Both Wednesday’s news conference and Thursday’s event will take place at the Washington Park Senior Center, located at 4420 W. Vliet Street in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event is sponsored by both the City of Milwaukee and Take Root Milwaukee, the city’s leading consortium working to prevent foreclosures and promote homeownership. “Often, homeowners nearing the possibility of foreclosure are unaware of help that’s available. This upcoming event is the best way for people to get free information and take action so they can resolve a difficult situation,” Milwaukee Alderman Michael Murphy said. “We want to keep all our neighborhoods as strong as possible, so preventing avoidable foreclosures is a priority.”

Event participants will have the opportunity to speak directly with national and local lenders about loan workout sessions or mortgage refinance options, and to local housing counselors to evaluate each borrower’s situation and provide options for getting help.

PLEASE NOTE: The Milwaukee Foreclosure Prevention Event itself is not open to the news media. That event will take place Thursday, October 10th, from 1:30 pm until 7:30 pm inside the Washington Park Senior Center, located at 4420 W. Vliet Street in Milwaukee.
