When times are hard financially, you need information on resources to help you avoid foreclosure and keep your home.

United Way of Pickens County has teamed up with Attorney West Cox, of West Cox Law Firm, to host free foreclosure prevention workshops for Pickens County households to help homeowners understand their rights and what they can do to keep their homes.

The Legal Education Awareness Program will include:

  • Information on homeowner legal rights.
  • How to avoid foreclosure.
  • What to do if foreclosure becomes a reality.

In addition to expert legal insight, each session will include a buffet dinner, a $20 gas card for each household attending, and a chance to win an iPad.

Sessions will be offered Thursday, November 30, 6-7 p.m. at Pickens Presbyterian Church, and Thursday, December 7, 6-7 p.m. at South and West in Easley. Registration is required. Sign up below.
