Help for Struggling Homeowners
A free workshop Friday at the Cobb Galleria features top mortgage servicers and non-profit housing counselors.
The HOPE NOW Alliance & Making Home Affordable are bringing the nation’s largest mortgage servicers, along with several non-profit housing counseling organizations, to Atlanta to work one-on-one with struggling homeowners in Georgia.
