The State Worker

Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

April 8, 2010
Not-for-profit group to host foreclosure prevention workshop

Hope|Against|HOPE, a not-for-profit that conducts free educational workshops to help homeowners who are struggling with their mortgages, has four workshops scheduled this month.

Here's how the organization's Web site describes the event:

At this 2-hour educational workshop you can come in not knowing what to do and 1) participate in this workshop, 2) be handed the same powerful tools the pros use and 3) leave with the restored confidence that you now have turn-by-turn instructions to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Two of the April workshops are scheduled for the Sacramento area. There's another set for San Jose. The fourth is an online Webinar. Online registration required. Click here to open Hope|Against|HOPE's Web site and click the "Workshops" link for meeting dates, times and locations.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
