OAKLAND (KCBS)— Oakland city leaders are encouraging residents to take part in a free five-day event starting Thursday aimed at helping homeowners avoid foreclosure.
The American Dream Event is put on by the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA) and is making its way to the city for the first time.
NACA Chief Operating Officer Detria Russel said the event takes place Thursday through Monday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the City Center Marriott.
“Our focus is to help homeowners who are struggling with an unaffordable mortgage payment. The American Dream Event will be that opportunity for them to sit face to face with their lender and walk out with the same day solution,” she said.
