City to Host More Foreclosure Prevention Workshops

The City of Moreno Valley is sponsoring a series of five free foreclosure prevention events in an effort to help Moreno Valley residents reduce their risk of home foreclosure. Following several successful workshops held last year that drew more than 700 people, the new series will run from the end of April through June at locations throughout the community. Workshops will be held at varying times and locations to provide a variety of opportunities to help accommodate residents’ schedules. Dates and locations include:

  • Monday, April 26: 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Vista Heights Middle School, 23049 Old Lake Road

Workshop presenters include representatives from the Homeownership Education Learning Program (HELP), the Fair Housing Council of Riverside County, Springboard, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Speakers will provide information and resources to help residents evaluate their specific situations in seeking to avoid foreclosure. Workshop attendees will be able to speak directly to housing counseling agencies and lenders. Workshop topics include:

Can my home be saved from foreclosure?
