Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network Mortage Relief Project - Joliet
March 23
The State of Illinois is sponsoring an event to help homeowners who struggling on their mortgage. The program has three goals – 1. Get consumers to meet with counselors or the lender sooner increasing the chance of success. 2. Provide education about the foreclosure process so homeowners can manage this crisis better. 3. Get homeowners to FREE counselors prior to being charged of $3,000 to $12,000 and the possibility of the "company" disappearing with their money.   This is a FREE event and we are NOT asking for financial assistance. We are only asking for assistance letting homeowners know about the event. This event is at Joliet Township High School – West Campus, 401 N Larkin Ave, Joliet IL 60435. This event is sponsored by Governor Pat Quinn’s Office; Illinois Housing Development Authority; Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR); Illinois Department of Employment Security; and Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office and hosted by State Senators Pat McGuire and Jennifer Bartino-Tarrent, State Representatives.
