DOVER — Delaware homeowners who face foreclosure, have fallen behind on their mortgage payments, or have questions about their mortgage can meet with lenders and housing counselors at two upcoming workshops in Dover on May 15 and Wilmington on May 16.

At each free workshop, homeowners can also get information from the Attorney General’s Office and the Delaware State Housing Authority about government programs, the Delaware foreclosure timeline, the national mortgage settlement, and preventing foreclosure frauds and scams. No reservations or appointments are needed.

“We want to help Delawareans protect their homes by connecting them with the resources and information that they need,” Attorney General Matt Denn said. “These workshops are a way to learn about alternatives in one stop.”

“We have worked for years to help Delawareans get back on their feet, aiding thousands of families with foreclosure prevention assistance and counseling,” said DSHA Director Anas Ben Addi. “Helping families keep their homes is one of the best things we can do to strengthen our communities.”

The foreclosure workshops will be May 15 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., with educational sessions at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., at the Modern Maturity Center, 1121 Forrest Avenue, Dover, and May 16 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., with an educational session at 5 p.m., at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, 815 Justison Street, Wilmington.
