On October 20, 10AM–Noon at the Boy’s Latin of Philadelphia Charter School, at 5502 Cedar Avenue, the Sheriff’s office will join forces with the office of State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams to present a comprehensive workshop for those facing foreclosure that will focus on how to avoid such a possibility.


Topics to be addressed include:


  • Loan modifications
  • Short sales
  • Secondary Financing
  • Financial management
  • Individual sessions with housing counselors


“We cannot expect to have safe, stable communities when the real threat of homelessness and desperation looms over families struggling to do the right thing,” Senator Williams said. “Houses left empty by foreclosure represent more than individual family misfortune. They easily devolve into breeding grounds for crime. And like a cancer, this one-two punch devours neighborhoods, especially economically fragile ones already on the edge.


“That’s why this workshop and others like it are so critical,” said Senator Williams. “Too often, the difference between losing a home and saving it is a matter of outreach and information. So it’s essential to offer both, in a collective fashion — particularly as people continue to battle to survive in this economy.”



The Veterans Support Group of America will also be available with information on options available to veterans and their families in similar situations, as well as how to qualify for home ownership, Disabled Veterans Real Estate Tax Exemptions and benefits eligibility.


Registration is requested for those attending. To reserve your spot, call (267) 385-7624 or go to to register.
