Free mortgage assistance clinics available

Virginians can register for Virginia Mortgage Clinics to receive free housing counseling sessions thanks to the Virginia Foreclosure  Prevention Task Force created by Gov. Timothy M. Kaine in the fall of 2007. The Task Force sponsors the clinics that will provide participants  with general information on foreclosure prevention and free 30 minute  face-to-face housing counseling sessions.

The free housing counseling sessions are scheduled for  Saturday, June 14 in Richmond, Tidewater and Roanoke  and Saturday, June 21st in Chantilly and Woodbridge in Northern  Virginia. Attendees will learn about the importance of contacting  their lender at the first sign of trouble, working with a housing  counselor, knowing their foreclosure prevention options, prioritizing  spending plans and avoiding foreclosure scams.

Walk-ins are welcome at the clinics, however space for the face-to- face housing counseling sessions is limited and pre-registration is  strongly encouraged. To register for a free housing counseling  session, attendees should visit the Virginia Foreclosure Prevention  Task Force website at http://www.VirginiaForeclosurePrevention.com.
