With household debt at an all time high and with the shortage of employment opportunities, many families are struggling to make ends meet. Bad things happen to good people, and the result is that many people are facing the possibility of foreclosure.

The Housing Partnership, in collaboration with Money Management International, is holding a free pre-foreclosure workshop, Keeping the Dream of Homeownership Alive, on Thursday, Jan. 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parsippany Library, 449 Halsey Road, Parsippany.

The seminar will provide homeowners with information about the foreclosure process, foreclosure prevention options offered by banks, information about avoiding rescue scams and much more. The presentation will feature speakers from Money Management International, Housing Partnership and Legal Services of Northwest New Jersey, which specializes in foreclosure counseling. Information on other local resources will also be available at the seminar.

Pre-registration is required for this event. For more information or to register call 973-659-9222 or email [email protected] According to the Housing Partnership, no children will be allowed at this event.
