Professionals Available to Offer Free Advice to Mississippians
Hattiesburg, MS – February 12, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — The Mississippi Home Corporation (MHC) will host a Financial Health Workshop on Thursday, February 25, 2010 at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center, 220 West Front Street in Hattiesburg. MHC will host the free workshop from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. The workshop will be particularly helpful for individuals who are worried about losing their home, are having trouble making ends meet, who believe they have a mortgage that is unfair, or simply want to learn how to manage their finance better. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet trained counselors who can review their finances, find other programs that can over assistance, and learn how to avoid financial pitfalls in the future.
Counselors and lenders will be on hand to answer questions about mortgages, refinancing, budgeting, and credit scores. Attendees are encouraged to bring as much information as possible that document their specific questions, especially any correspondence with their lender if they’re interested in refinancing or adjusting the terms of their current mortgage.
“This financial health workshop will provide valuable, useful financial knowledge to the public free of charge,” explained Dr. Ben Mokry, Senior Vice President at MHC. “The most important thing for the public to know is that help is available and that they shouldn’t wait when it comes to seeking help for financial problems because delays only make problems worse. This workshop provides the perfect opportunity for people to take the first step towards long-term financial health,” he explained.
