DISTRICT 5 COUNCIL MEMBER JOLENE IVEY JOINS CONGRESSMAN GLENN IVEY TO CO-HOST FORECLOSURE AND EVICTION PREVENTION WORKSHOP
Event to Provide Free On Site Assistance for Residents Facing Foreclosure and Eviction
Prince George’s County Council Member Jolene Ivey (District 5) will join Maryland Congressman Glenn Ivey to co-host a Foreclosure and Eviction Prevention Workshop on Saturday, March 4, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Highland Park, 6801 Sheriff Road in Landover.
The Foreclosure and Eviction Prevention Workshop will provide onsite assistance for homeowners and renters facing foreclosure or eviction. Housing counselors, attorneys, and loan servicers, including representatives from Housing Initiative Partners (HIP) Homes, Casa De Maryland, Homefree USA, Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development, and Employ Prince George’s will also be on hand to share resources and help participants identify solutions for their housing challenges.
During the day’s event, attendees will also hear from Community Legal Services of Prince George’s County Inc. Executive Director Jessica Quincosa; Southern Christian Leadership Conference President Josephine Mourning; and Prince George’s County Sheriff John Carr. There will be opportunities to learn more about Maryland’s foreclosure and eviction laws, and the rights and obligations of homeowners and renters.
Council Member Ivey says it is important to provide distressed homeowners and renters with the resources they need to address their housing challenges.
“There are thousands of Prince Georgians facing foreclosure and eviction, and we want to provide them with the tools necessary to work through their housing challenges. Homeowners and tenants who are displaced are often forced into precarious housing situations, including homelessness, which impacts entire communities. The process may seem overwhelming, but the Foreclosure and Prevention Workshop is designed to help residents identify what the next steps should be and help them move towards effective solutions.”
Residents are encouraged to RSVP, Bit.ly/40TxOCy and should bring all documents related to their foreclosure or eviction. A RSVP is encouraged, but not required. Spanish Interpreters will be available on-site. For more information contact Councildistrict5@co.pg.md.us
