Don't lose your home to foreclosure!

Congressman Hank Johnson will host an event to help struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure.

The event will be held Saturday, Dec. 8,10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at Salem Bible Church,  5460 Hillandale Drive, Lithonia.

Johnson is hosting the free event with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs’ HomeSafe Georgia program and the D&E Group, which are certified housing counselors.

The event marks the second one Johnson has held this year to address the foreclosure crisis.

Johnson held a similar event on April 28 in which hundreds of homeowners were helped.

HomeSafe is designed to provide temporary assistance to Georgia homeowners who have suffered a substantial income loss due to involuntary unemployment or underemployment and who are able and willing to work.

The event will also provide opportunities for homeowners to meet with counselors to see if they are eligible for a loan modification.

To pre-qualify and to register, participants can call D&E at 770-961-6900 or visit their Web site at depower.org.
