Peoples' Self-Help Housing Corporation (PSHH) invites the public to attend a free foreclosure prevention workshop on Wednesday, March 11th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Building at Dahlia Court Apartments, at 1300 Dahlia Court in Carpinteria. The workshop will be conducted in Spanish and English simultaneously.

The workshop is open to Santa Barbara and Ventura area homeowners who wish to learn more about the foreclosure process and what other options may be available besides foreclosure to resolve their current situation. Participants will learn strategies to preserve homeownership and avoid foreclosure. Workshop attendees needing further assistance will be able to set up appointments with bi-lingual PSHH housing counselors.
