Federal, state and local officials in Willingboro, N.J. are offering help today to residents who may be facing foreclosure of their homes during a symposium at John F. Kennedy High School's Kennedy Center.
Officials are on site to help residents understand the process of foreclosure and how best to avoid it.
Banks from whom residents received their mortages are also in attendance, and one-on-one counseling is available for those who have questions about their current mortgage.
The symposium opened with remarks from Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3rd), who said the federal agencies are poised to help.
"The surprising thing is that a lot of people are hesitant or scared to say "I need help," he said.
