Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

Prominent leaders will gather in response to last month’s unexpected rise in foreclosures, especially those hitting Latinos and other minorities. The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Spanish Coalition for Housing are announcing a Foreclosure Solutions Fair to take place on Saturday, Nov. 1st, 2014 from 9 am to 2pm at the Arturo Velasquez Institute located at 2800 S. Western Ave. in Chicago, IL. The event will convene six major mortgage lenders, who will be providing mortgage solutions on the spot for those who qualify, along with providing struggling families the opportunity to work with a certified housing counselor. Studies have shown that families, who work with a certified housing counselor, are more likely to receive a loan modification. “If you are having financial problems, we highly encourage you to attend. You do not have to be behind on your mortgage to receive assistance. We will help everyone, not just the Latino community. The most important thing is to get started,” said Executive Director of Spanish Coalition for Housing Gabriela Roman.
