Community Invited to Foreclosure Prevention Clinic

Posted on Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Foreclosure help is now available to underserved North Carolina families through the North Carolina Central University School of Law’s Technology Assisted Legal Instruction and Services (TALIAS) program.

The public is invited to learn more during “Community Education Day: What to Do When Facing Mortgage Issues,” which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the Turner Law Building.

This initiative, established through grant funding, also will allow homeowners across the state to participate in the forum using telepresence videoconferencing. NCCU has established sites at four universities: Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A&T University and Winston-Salem State University. Each will participate in the events.

The forum will offer individual meetings with foreclosure defense attorneys, information sessions on foreclosure prevention, explanations of government programs that assist homeowners in foreclosure, and various foreclosure prevention strategies. Participants should bring all foreclosure and loan documents.

To register, contact Michelle Roberts at 919-530-6601 or talias@nccu.edu.
