October 25 2014 MRP Joliet Page 1State Senators Pat McGuire and Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant will be hosting a foreclosure prevention workshop on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Joliet Township High School's West Campus (401 N. Larkin Avenue, Joliet, IL).

Will and Kendall counties were hit hard by foreclosures when the housing market crashed due to recession. And although the economy is recovering, the number of homes foreclosed on in these counties was double the national average as recently as this past summer. In fact, the number of foreclosed homes in these two counties put them in the top three in the state for foreclosures.

That is why McGuire and Bertino-Tarrant continue to bring the State of Illinois' Mortgage Relief Project (MRP) to the area every year.

"The foreclosure process can be overwhelming, confusing and paralyzing," McGuire said. "These events allow homeowners to meet with teams of staff members from major lenders who can answer their questions and help take the fear and frustration out of the process."

"The Illinois Mortgage Relief Project provides a tremendous service to the people of Illinois," said Bertino-Tarrant. "It is obvious that there is still a need for foreclosure prevention services in our area, so I am glad we are able to bring this event to the people of Will and Kendall counties."
