HO285 Transitioning Consumers: Counseling Clients to Take the Next Steps

Many homeowners are unable to retain homeownership and thus are facing the need to relocate and make a number of tough choices related to their transition. This course provides practical skills to foreclosure counselors so they can provide a range of guidance and assistance to those homeowners who cannot keep their homes. In order to support homeowners in making informed decisions for their situations, course participants will examine options and resources related to exiting homeownership, relocating, restoring basic security and rebuilding finances. Referrals are vital for transitioning homeowners, and participants will identify local referral sources and how to access them throughout the course. This course also will explore regional and local program models and provide an opportunity for participants to consider service delivery strategies that fit their community needs and organizational capacity. 
Priority for this training is offered to housing counseling professionals working under the Illinois Attorney General’s Housing Counseling and Community Revitalization Program. Seating is limited. The event may fill up prior to deadline.

Registration Fee: $75.00

The preregistration deadline is April 14, 2017. Register now.
